SUCCESSES: THE NEW PANTRY
More than 500 donors–individuals, community groups, churches and local businesses came together to underwrite the construction of a debt-free new facility to house the operations of Elmhurst-Yorkfield Food Pantry that literally began in a closet of Yorkfield Presbyterian Church in 1983. The cottage on the church campus that housed the program since 1998 has been replaced by a 2,500 square foot facility with separate areas for client shopping and volunteer tasks such as sorting food and storage. A bright reception area provides warmth while people await their turns. The facility is fully accessible and complies with local building codes improving safety and comfort for all who come through EYFP’s doors. Watch this site for news about a series of events that will invite donors, friends and neighbors to visit and see what this generous community has built.
