Lyman County communities have generously donated to the Food Pantry at the Presho Thrift Store this fall said newly elected Thrift Store board president Lois Comp.
"The food pantry is well stocked for the winter," said Comp. "Donations have been very good."
Recently the Boy Scouts, Lyman Student Council, West River Flowers and Kennebec’s Holiday Craft Show have made sizable donations to the pantry. In addition, the Thrift Store has grocery store certificates for perishable items like milk, eggs and meat.
The Thrift Store bought fresh fruit that local 4-H clubs will package up for cheer baskets that will be delivered to elderly residents next weekend.
"It’s our mission to help the youth and elderly of our communities," said Comp.
Sometimes finding those in need can be difficult in small towns. The Thrift Store board appreciates the assistance they receive from the Ministerial Association and Lyman School staff in identifying families in need.
The pantry is open to the public during the Thrift Store’s regular business hours, Thursday and Friday 10 am to 5 pm and Saturday 10 am to 2 pm.
Residents of Lyman County are reminded that food is available for those in need of assistance.
The Thrift Store works with members of the Lyman Ministerial Association to provide holiday meals to families.
