- 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.

Announcing the 100 Grand Campaign for 2013.
The Caring Place is conducting its annual 100 Grand Campaign from mid-September through mid-December. The goal of the campaign is to collect 100,000 pounds of food for The Caring Place Food Pantry. This is the approximate amount of food that will be provided to eligible families as the Holidays approach. The Campaign’s progress will be tracked and reported weekly; all financial donations to the Campaign will be credited as two pounds of food for each dollar donated. Financial donations will be used to purchased needed perishable items for the Food Pantry. For information on how to host or donate to a food drive, contact David Earl at 943-0710 (email@example.com) or Rita Turner at 943-0702 (or firstname.lastname@example.org).
