Food Pantry

Eudora News and Informationwww.eudorareporter.com

With the Holidays approaching way to fast, we take time to try to help out those less fortunate.  Several organizations in Eudora need your help.

His Hands Clothing Closet is in need of coats for all ages. They have had many requests for coats in all sizes. Some orders have been filled but they still are in need of many sizes from small girls size 2t to junior sizes, and boys from 12 mos to junior sizes.  The closet is also in need of men’s and women’s coats from medium to the largest plus sizes.

They have a waiting list with a few who are pending donated sizes. Also any hats, scarves, mittens, gloves, snow boots can be dropped off at the clothing closet.  To find out how you can help out  His Hands Clothing Closet, contact Christine Zimmer  at 785-542-3528 or via email at pcdzimmer@hotmail.com

Not only is there a need for clothing at HHCC, the Eudora Food Pantry (located at St. Paul United Church of Christ) is very much in need of donated items. Canned and boxed food is always in need.  At this time, the Food pantry is seriously in need of personal care items (i.e. soap, toothpaste, shampoo, etc).  Please bring your items to St. Paul or to your own Church which will send them on to the Food Pantry.

Finally, the Ministerial Alliance also offers an emergency assistance program for those in need or facing difficult times. The money in this fund comes from all the churches in Eudora and is “regulated” so that as many people as possible are helped.  If you are willing to help with the Emergency Assistance Fund either give it to your church or send donations to the Eudora Methodist Church marked as emergency assistance.

The Ministerial Alliance is an organization that consists of the pastors from many of the churches in the Eudora community.  This group also supports the food pantry.

Please consider taking a moment and helping out those who need your assistance.
