After an embarrassing show back in September, the West End Civic Association has now issued a statement via its mailing list, offering full support of the food pantry operating out of Grace Seventh-Day Adventist Church.
The organization sent an email this morning saying:
The pantry at Grace Church is getting ready to assist those in need during the holiday season. In support of the pantry, the WECA Board has made a unanimous motion stating, WECA and its Board support food pantries as a vital social service. In addition, after clarifying the zoning and licensing issues concerning Grace Seventh Day Adventist Church, WECA and its Board also support the existence of the Church’s food pantry and appreciate the service it provides to our neighborhood and those in need.
If you would like to show your support for the pantry, feel free to stop by on Wednesdays between 11-1 and say hello, volunteer, or make a donation.
The food pantry is located near Elizabeth Park on Prospect Avenue.
