GOD’S PANTRY – YERINGTON, NEVADA
Consider God’s Pantry in your Thanksgiving and Christmas giving and sharing.
God’s Pantry is a community outreach program sponsored by Community United Methodist Church, 221 N. Main Street, Yerington. The Pantry has been in operation since March 2020 offering hygiene and cleaning products to Seniors and families with a need.
On the third Wednesday of every month, volunteers run a drive through pantry where participants can choose 4 items from over 23 different products at no charge to them. Pantry items are also offered to Senior shut-ins through a partnership with Meals on Wheels in Yerington and Smith Valley.
Each month approximately 100 local households are assisted through this program. Individuals or organizations can make donations of product or can make monetary donations with the assurance that 100% of all donations go to purchasing products for the benefit of the participants.
Examples of products offered include soaps like body wash, hand soap, shampoo, dish soap, laundry soap; hygiene products like deodorant, toothpaste, denture cleaner, lotion and household products like toilet paper, paper towels, tissues, surface cleaner, toilet bowl cleaner and bleach. These products are all necessary for a healthy life and living environment but generally are not covered by other public assistance programs.
God’s Pantry helps fill this gap for many households in our community. For more information on how you or your organization can donate or help out, call or text Kris Beck 775-771-5030.
