2012 in review

In 2012, the Kingswood Emergency Food Pantry fed 1,456 families, or 5,824 people, averaging 28 people per week.

Our many thanks go to the 35 volunteers who operated the Pantry——to the Boy Scouts, to the many schools, community groups, religious and service organizations, local businesses and individual families who
supported us during the year, to Ron Ericksen and Linda Argento for their special assistance in preparing the food for distribution, and to Rev. James, Rev. Luke, Charlene and Anita for their tireless and enthusiastic support.

Most of all we thank you, the members and friends of Kingswood who have made this ministry possible. Your continued support, even in this difficult economy, uplifts our hearts indeed. Our blessings and thanks to all of you!

Jim & Cheryl Gibson,
Food Pantry Coordinators
