canned food 300MUHLENBERG COUNTY, KY (12/13/12) – The holiday season often evokes thoughts of brightly wrapped packages, tinsel-adorned trees, and steaming dishes of delicious foods. However, for many, even basic supplies are low at this time of year, and food pantries are feeling the strain.
Employees at First Kentucky Bank across the region have risen to fill this need for pantries in each community. The Central City and Greenville branches have been collecting food for Manna 4 Muhlenberg, a non-profit food pantry run out of Second Baptist Church in Greenville. First Kentucky collected two large totes of food for donation to this worthy cause. The items collected were delivered to Manna 4 Muhlenberg on Wednesday, December 5.
"I feel very blessed for all that I have, so I'd like to help others who may be in need," stated Kristie Ferguson, teller at the Greenville office.
Manna 4 Muhlenberg currently serves 59 individuals and families on a regular basis. Donna Dukes, a volunteer for the pantry, stated that the closet has been operational for around 15 months. According to Ms. Dukes, many of the clients they serve receive food stamps. However, there are basic household supplies that food stamps will not cover. These include paper products (toilet tissue and feminine hygiene products), dishwashing soap, shampoo, and basic hygiene products are desperately needed for these individuals. Manna 4 Muhlenberg is open year-round and always accepting donations of nonperishable foods, as well as these items.
For more information, or to donate, contact Rick Jackson (270-608-0868), Kaye Hibbs (270-543-5345), Donna Dukes (270-543-9568), or call Second Baptist Church (270-338-6161).
