Letter to the Editor

Thanks for support

Thursday, November 18, 2004

Dear Editor:

Because of cutbacks in the United States Department of Agriculture commodity disbursement program, the McCook Pantry is now receiving about a third of the food it once received.

That cut could have been devastating for families in need in Southwest Nebraska. But as usual, the citizens of McCook have stepped forward and shown the truly generous spirit so common in our little corner of the world.

We would like to thank everyone who has helped in our effort to help hungry families. Without them we could not have helped feed hundreds of families throughout the year.

We would also like to express our deepest gratitude to the men and women who have helped us while serving their sentence at the Nebraska Work Ethic Camp. We wouldn't be able to get along without them.

Again, thank you.

The Pantry is open Monday through Friday, 1 to 4 p.m. Anyone in need of help with groceries is invited to stop by for help. Visits are limited to one each month. Food items may also be dropped off during those hours.

Again, thank you for your support of the McCook Pantry.
