The blustery autumn months are upon us. Before you know it, those holidays are going to be blowing down the street, right toward us.
For NNEMAP Food Pantry customers, holiday gifts can be out of reach. That’s why we try to brighten up those days by offering toys and gifts to our youngest customers. Last year NNEMAP Food Pantry served 4,675 children aged 17 or younger. Nearly 1,000 of them received holiday gifts. That put a lot of smiles on little faces!
The Holiday Gift Shoppe is back for 2020–and we fear it may be needed more than ever. We can only offer this special service with your help. Can you donate a gift–or your gifts–to put a smile on a child’s face this holiday season?
Here’s how you can help:
*Donate new, unwrapped gifts: here are some great GIFT IDEAS
*Donate funds on our DONATION PAGE
*Donate your time by volunteering! Here’s how YOU CAN HELP!
*Print and share a copy of our informational flyer: PRINT A COPY NOW!
THANK YOU FOR HELPING MAKE THE HOLIDAYS A SPECIAL TIME FOR OUR YOUNGEST CUSTOMERS!!!
Did you feel that? Nope–not those recent 90-degree days. Those couple of nights in the high 50s–did you feel that?
We did. Sure, the frost ain’t quite on the pumpkin yet, but we felt that little bit of cool creeping in. And it can only mean one thing: fall is near! And you know what rhymes with “fall is near”?!? Yes: VOL-UN-TEER!!! You read my mind! Read on for some fun new ways (and old) to help out around the best pantry in Columbus!
STUDENT SERVICE HOURS School is back in session in one way or another. If you or someone you know needs to complete service hours as a course or graduation requirement, let us know! Please note that anyone under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or responsible adult.
DRIVERS NEEDED Do you like to stay on the move? We can help! We need volunteers to deliver groceries to customers and pick up donations from area stores and restaurants. Come join our fleet!
NEW SHIFTS Looking for after school/work activity? We’ve got you covered. We are now open Thursday afternoon from 3pm-7pm. Need to fill those college football-free Saturdays? Come in for our 10am-1pm shift. Join our team and help us win the big game against food insecurity!
WE CAN’T WAIT TO SEE YOU! Hurry up and get in here–we’ve got work to do!
