- The Food Pantry at The Caring Place relies on the generous donations of non-perishable foods to keep our shelves filled for area families in need. Cash donations are also accepted and are used to purchase needed perishable items. In 2012, more than 199 tons food with an equivelent retail value of over $420,000 was distributed to 4,905 area families through the Food Pantry.
This week, we are most in need of the items listed below.
Please note: we do NOT need any BABY FOOD at this time as we are overstocked.
Thank you for supporting the 2013 Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive, sponsored by the National Association of Letter Carriers. The Georgetown community provided nearly 20,000 pounds of food to this annual event, held this year on Saturday, May 11. All of the food collected by Georgetown carriers stayed in Georgetown for distribution to families in need through the Food Pantry program at The Caring Place.
