January 2021 Geneseo-Atkinson Food Pantry Newsletter

The Food Pantry staff, board, volunteers and clients send wishes for a happy and healthy New Year!  During the holidays, our clients had the opportunity to see God’s love at work through the many donations to the Food Pantry that helped them have a brighter Christmas season. The outpouring of support this year has been overwhelming! 

We would like to thank all of the churches, individuals, community organizations and area businesses for all they have done for our clients with donations of food, holiday gifts and financial assistance.  With your help we were able to bless many families during the holidays and we would like to take this opportunity to pass on their thanks to all of you. 

With the increase of COVID-19 cases in the area, we have closed our clothing and household room. Our main concern is the safety of our volunteers, clients, and staff. Therefore, we are not currently accepting clothing and household donations. We will continue to take food donations on Mondays from 9-12 and 1-4. We ask you to leave only food donations in the carts located outside both our front and back doors. Monetary donations may be made at geneseofoodpantry.org or mailed to: PO Box 324, Geneseo. We will re-evaluate our policies when the COVID-19 numbers in Henry County decrease.

We will continue to offer curbside food pick up every Tuesday from 9-11:30 am to our clients. If you or your family need assistance please reach out to us at 944-3165.

Please like our Facebook page or visit our website at geneseofoodpantry.org for the latest updates.

Thank you for all your support throughout the year. We pray that God blesses you and your families in 2021!
