I'm one of the newer volunteers at the Lord's Pantry of Downingtown and I have to say that I've been totally impressed with the number of people that this organization serves and the wonderful spirit of the people who donate their time to assist. During this holiday season, it has been amazing to see the number of families who have received Thanksgiving dinners and Holiday gifts due to the generosity of the organization's supporters. With the current state of the economy, and the growing number of people in need, this organization is more important than ever and is deserving of your support.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the feeling of truly helping those in need.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

friendly, caring and dedicated.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

expand its area of coverage and help those in places that do not have a food bank to turn to in times of financial need.

I am so grateful for the Lord's Pantry. They are always there to help in anyway that they can. In the summertime when I was blessed to help my sister with her childern while she was in rehab, the lord's pantry helped me out with food. They never ever judged me or my family. If it wasn't for the pantry I don't know where my family would be at today. It did come to a point where it was food or rent. But thanks to the pantry, I always know that I can make it month to month. I have been really sick this past year and Jan and her crew where there to ask how I was and they were able to allow my mother to pick up my food. I can't wait until I am back on my feet so that I can give back to the Lord's Pantry. I want to thank GOD and everyone for their blessing and understanding of those in need. Thanks to the community for all their help in keeping the pantry open. Also I want to thank everyone who had helped out with the gifts for the childern for christmas. Thanks to you I am able to make christmas a little better this year.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

every month getting food that I really need to feed my childern.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

make the building bigger and to have the staff paid.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

that the staff is very friendly and understanding.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

the most friendlest people I have ever met.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

make sure that people in need for food, shelter, and education would have what they needed.

Ways to make it better...

I didn't worry about how I was going to make it month to month.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

not being sure the pantry will stay open.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I LOVE THE PANTRY.

When I retired in April, I found I needed some volunteer work to fill my time. I stopped in at The Lord's Pantry and immediately felt at home. The organization began about 40 years ago, as a small service within a local church. Today it has grown to a food bank that services over 700 families each month. The clients are treated with genuine kindness, warmth and respect. Over 100 volunteers give of their time each month to stock the pantry and pick up donated food. There are also special distributions during the year; ie, Easter, Back to School Supplies, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. Due to the present economic times, and the struggles that some of our community members of are experiencing, it is very rewarding to know that I can help those that are less fortunate.
