Metrocrest Services recently moved into its new location at the corner of Josey Lane and Belt Line Road and its new pantry has been exceptionally busy. Last week there were 1,275 pantry visits which equates to 81,000 pounds of food. This week looks to be just as busy. While they are adding retail partner pickups to keep the shelves full, they have reached out to the communities they support to ask for assistance.
Addison will be collecting items for the Metrocrest Services Pantry at Town Hall and the Athletic Club from July 31 – August 14. The urgent pantry needs include:
· Feminine hygiene products
· Adult incontinence supplies (Depends)
· Canned Soup
· Baking Items
· Peanut Butter
