Murrieta is participating in the Homeless Alliance
This was an interesting month at the Pantry with lots of nice things happening. The Young Mothers Groups at the LDS Church filled Mothers’ Day gift baskets and handed them out to the pantry visitors the Friday before Mothers’ Day. We were also visited on Friday morning by Brian Ambrose, the Assistant to the Murrieta City Manager. Murrieta is participating in the Homeless Alliance, a coalition of six communities in Southwest Riverside County to help solve the homeless problem. Local food pantries serve a number of homeless families and many that are precariously close to homelessness. Mr. Ambrose wants to set up resource workshop tables where volunteers distribute information about the agencies in our area that could be a benefit to the people in those situations. While he just is in the early planning stages it is definitely something our team is excited to see happen.
During summer break: trail mix, granola bars, fruit snacks and peanut butter and jelly are a treat for kids.
We thank you for all the Spam and canned chicken you’ve donated. Here is just one note from one who benefitted from your generosity. As summer vacation for the schools comes up, trail mix, granola bars, fruit snacks and peanut butter and jelly are the treats that children home from school most look forward to. The grocery basket for donations is located at the Welcome Center on Sundays. As always, thank you everyone for continuing to support the pantry. For more info check out our page.
