Augusta Community Rallies for Area Food Pantries

In these trying times, Augusta area Churches and organizations raised $800.00 plus collected 12 large boxes on nonperishable food items in support of the Augusta Community Outdoor Food Pantry, St. Vincent de Paul Pantry in New Melle and The Southern Warren & St. Charles County Food Pantry in Marthasville.

The collection was sponsored by Ebenezer UCC, Immaculate Conception, & Christ Lutheran Churches. Thanks to the many businesses that let us place collection cans in their facilities.

The Augusta Community Food Pantry Collection is an annual event so watch for collection cans and food boxes next year.

Many thanks to all who donated items, money and time to make the Food Drive a success.
