LORD S PANTRY OF DOWNINGTOWN
December 29, 2011

The Pantry provides a dignifying experience for each client. We provide not only food, but also friendliness, empathy and respect. The pantry pays not a penny in salaries - - everyone is a volunteer, including the entire leadership team. All the volunteers will go the extra mile to serve our clients. It is an honor to serve among these volunteers; it is also gratifying to work with our clients, many of whom face wide-ranging challenges with grace and poise. - - debbie & randy b.

LORD S PANTRY OF DOWNINGTOWN
December 27, 2010

We have been volunteering for several years and have seen the dedication of the other volunteers, as well as the fantastic, caring assistance that our clients receive. Even though the client base has nearly doubled over the past four years as the US economy plunged, the Pantry has somehow risen to the challenge with ever-improving services. Most recently, it was a joy to see the true spirit of the 2010 Christmas season, as our all-volunteer organization distributed Christmas dinner fixings to over 200 families and answered the precise Christmas wishes of over 500 children! Then, two days later, took to the task of delivering "senior boxes" to the elderly, and continuing to provide emergency food supplies to over 100 families per week - - our clients select their own groceries in an uplifting, shopping-like experience. The dedicated volunteers take their cue from the exceptional role models on the Board and in leadership positions, all of whom fight hunger passionately and wisely without a penny of salary
