Visits to the largest food pantry continue to climb while in-kind donations dwindle, and the community is being asked for support. “We’ve really experienced a boom in the last couple of months. It does seem to coincide with unemployment benefits ending,” says Saint Vincent DePaul Executive Director Ashley McKinnon.
“Over the last few months, we’ve met a lot of new friends in need who’ve never been to the food pantry before,” says McKinnon.
If interested, monetary donations can be sent to PO Box 1111, Marinette or if your business or school would like to host a food drive, please visit the food drive resource page at SVDPMARINETTE.COM
