Help the Brookings County Food Pantry

I hope you will join me in sending a monetary donation or a food donation to the Brookings (SD) County Food Pantry.

They were featured Saturday in the Brookings Register.  My old home town's food pantry is in need of help as the pantry is helping more people than usual during these tough times.
(Pantry manager Don) Kasak reported Friday that the downtown pantry has assisted 753 families so far this year that's 143 more than in all of 2007.

"We're feeding a thousand adults right now," Kasak said, "and we get eight to 10 people a day stopping for assistance."

To give a monetary donation, send your check to:
Brookings Co. Food Pantry
PO Box 972
Brookings, SD  57032

The pantry is located at the corner of Third Avenue and Fourth Street in Brookings if you want to drop off a check or a food donation.
If you don't want to donate to the Brookings food pantry, donate to the pantry or food bank that serves your community this holiday season.
