God’s Pantry and the City are reaching out to citizens who may need help restocking the fridge after the power outage.
“Filling up a refrigerator is expensive,” Mayor Jim Gray said. “Thanks to God’s Pantry Food Bank for helping us help those who can’t afford to replace the basics.”
People can stock up on God’s Pantry’s fresh fruit and vegetables, bread, and snacks at three locations beginning at 10 a.m. Monday, July 23:
- Valley Park, 2077 Cambridge Drive
- Woodhill Community Center Parking Lot, 422 Cordell Drive
- Douglass Park, Oteria O’Rear Community Center, 726 Georgetown St.
Volunteers will work with God’s Pantry at the Valley Park site; Lexington Leadership Foundation and neighborhood volunteers will support efforts at Woodhill; and city park employees will staff the Douglass Park site.
“Thanks to God’s Pantry and all of the volunteers,” Gray said. “Lexington citizens are always ready to roll up their sleeves and help others. That’s what makes our city a great place to live.”
For more information or assistance citizens should call 859-258-3600.
