A thief is a thief, whether he steals a diamond or a cucumber.

Indian Proverb

Folks I am ashamed to report, our food pantry was robbed. Not of money but the sustenance which it housed. Those items which contributed toward the well being and comfort of those families in our community, who through no fault of their own, fall short of meeting their need of a full, healthy daily meal.

Sometime between Monday, August 1st and Friday, August 5, 2022, our pantry was breached and the entire refrigerated stock was stolen, most of our frozen stock was taken along with salts, oils, cereals, paper goods and detergents. The amounts of inventory taken was not just to satisfy the hunger for one meal to just-get-by but to fill an avaristic greed which knew no bounds.

My message to the thieves you did not steal from me, but you literally stole food out-of-someone’s mouth. What You did do to me?…You forced us to turn away folks who needed that food! You forced us to delay much needed meals to families in need of food until we could replenish the food panty. You could see the call list for access and assistance in the use of the Food Pantry. Yet instead YOU chose to steal not just one meal but many meals.

YOU DID THAT!

YOU BEAR THAT SHAME!

Law enforcement has been notified of the breach. You cannot make up for those meals lost due to your poor decisions and actions but you can provide for future meals with a donation to the Food Pantry. I can be contacted at the number on the call list at the Food Pantry.

AN HONORABLE MAN HAS A HEART FOR THE POOR AND VULNERABLE IN OUR SOCIETY.
