The Long County Food Pantry will give away food today and throughout the holidays to those in need, according to Tina Skipper, the Long County coordinator of concerted services.
She said the pantry is open from 8 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
“The food pantry will be opened on Wednesday so that if anyone needs food for Thanksgiving, it is here for them,” Skipper said, adding that all of the food pantry items are gathered through donations from the community.
Pantry volunteer William Miller said local schools also contribute to the cause. During the anti-drug Red Ribbon Week, students worked hard to bring in food for the pantry, said Miller, executive director of the Long County Family Connection.
“During Red Ribbon Week, the students had the ‘I can do without drugs’ campaign and brought different items for the pantry,” he said.
