LORD S PANTRY OF DOWNINGTOWN
November 30, 2010

I was looking for a place to volunteer since I retired and started helping at The Lord's Pantry last spring. I feel privileged to work with Jan and her assistant Linda. The Pantry provides monthly food assistance to families in the Downingtown area who would otherwise go hungry. The volunteers I work with are amazing and the clients I see each month are so appreciative. They are able to truly shop and choose the food products their family needs. The number of needy families continues to grow and I find it so rewarding to be able to help at this wonderful organization.
