To the Editor:
The Loaves and Fishes Food Pantry is sponsored by the Carroll County Ministerial Association. As director of the pantry, I would like to express gratitude for the generosity of the Carrollton community during the Christmas holiday season.

Several thousands of dollars and dozens of collections of food items have been donated to the food pantry in recent weeks to pass on to needy households. About 300 households received holiday meats and other goods from the pantry during December. Donations were received from individuals, clubs, churches, businesses and other organizations. Recipients of the new revenue stream from mineral exploration in our county have been especially generous in remembering the food pantry in their giving.

The churches of our community also provide the necessary staffing with dozens of volunteers working on a regular basis. The Sisters of Charity provide the pantry facility rent free. Truly the Carrollton/Carroll County area can be called a place of community with many people working together for the common good in a spirit of cooperation, generosity and charity, all under the name “Christian.”

Rev. Gordon Warner
Director
Loaves and Fishes Food Pantry
