Recently, we found out that the building that Esther's Pantry now occupies has been sold.  The closing date is somewhere around February, and we will need to relocate soon.  We have been looking at several possible sites, but have not yet secured one.  Because the previous landlord (Providence) paid for the lease as well as utilities, we estimate that the annual operating costs will increase by about $80,000 to $100,000. 

We will be looking to the community for support for this critical service.  Because we are trying to locate it more centrally to be closer to most of the clients that utilize it, we estimate that the number of clients will increase as well.  We currently serve about 700 clients per year, and estimate that it will increase by about 25% just because it will be more convenient.

During the Holidays, food always plays and important role in our lives.  Those that visit our pantry are not always so lucky to have the bounty of food that you see on our tables at Thanksgiving or Christmas.  Many individuals and organizations have chosen Esther's Pantry and Tod's Corner to donate food and clothing during this time.
