Pellston Food Pantry Fundraiser
Randy Bricker, Director of the Pellston Food Pantry, announces a fundraiser for a pole barn to be used for the Pellston Food Pantry which is part of the Manna Food Project operating in Antrim, Charlevoix and Emmet countries. The new building would be built on the pantry property next to the facility in Pellston (formerly Grace Community Church). It will store the transport vehicle used to pick up food supplies from Manna.  It will also be a place to store maintenance equipment and donations that do not fit in the main building (due to size or quantity).  The monetary goal is $30,518 with the hope of completing the project before winter.
Donations are tax deductible and may be sent to
Pellston Area Food Pantry, PO Box 467, Pellston, MI 49769.
