We have FINALLY moved! After 40 years in the basement of the First United Presbyterian Church in Collinsville, we have relocated to our own building! We have been very busy with the renovation creating a former EPA office building into a full functioning food pantry. We have offices, Men's and Women's bathrooms (with handicap stalls), storage space for our pallets of canned goods and over 6,000 square foot of flat floors (no stairs)! This is something we only thought was a dream and it became a reality with support of friends like you. The pantry was open for business this last Tuesday and the patrons were able to come in and shop. That is something we have not been able to do in over 2 years. We will be able to help more people and expand services in areas like mental health. We hope to partner with other agencies that offer support to people in need. We have the space to do that now. Please continue to help us do this ministry for the people of Collinsville.
p.s. Check out our photo! We hope to have the sign installed soon.
