Monthly Capital Campaign – The May capital campaign is for The Pantry and More Inc. This ministry is a non-profit organization that offers food, clothing and other items to those in a time of need. They are not government funded and rely solely on clothing, food, and monetary donations. The Pantry is a blessing to our community as it gives people a place to come to when they are struggling financially or spiritually. As many knows, the previous owner of The Pantry, Mr. Tommy Shelton passed away on October 26, 2018, after a short battle with lung cancer. He opened the pantry with hopes that he would one day be able to provide food, clothing, and toys to those less fortunate and in need. His hopes and dreams became a reality in his time of operating the pantry which he gave all the honor and glory to God for its success. In his memory, the pantry has been kept open and will continue to do so with the support of the community of Stephenville and surrounding areas. There are several expenses that come with the operation of the Pantry including buying groceries to restock the shelves, paying a monthly electric bill so that our refrigerators will stay on and cool for perishable items and paying fuel costs when traveling to food banks to buy more groceries. We will take this offering on Sunday, May 26th.
