Calhouners have shown again their caring and compassion for their neighbors. They have surpassed the giving of former years in food and monetary donations to the Calhoun Food Pantry, which is located at First Baptist Church, Grantsville.

The Food Pantry is supported by over 25 local churches, plus schools, local organizations and local merchants, and former Calhouners in other states.

 Contributions of potatoes, apples, sweet potatoes, turkeys and miscellaneous other foods were delivered from individuals in Ohio and South Carolina. Six pickup loads were collected during the joint Thanksgiving services held at Knotts Memorial, Louisa Chapel, Enon Baptist and First Baptist.

The final service opened with the dedication of the new Food Pantry that is located on Florence Alley in the former parsonage garage. The worship service, held in the sanctuary, included a dedication of the food and closed with a laying on of hands for Pete and Millie Trippett as Food Pantry missionaries. All able bodies helped carry the food to the new site.

The interest and caring of the community was overwhelming. As the new site was being prepared, passersby would stop to give a helping hand. Can you imagine a single person transferring over six pickup loads of food down the steps? It was done in a short time.

The Thanksgiving services displayed a feeling of cooperation and even fun, as joking and teasing went on between the groups represented, but we knew that, above all, we were helping to care for God’s people.

This endeavor will not end when this food is distributed. The Food Pantry is here to serve Calhouners in stress all year. A person’s statement of need is honored.

Donations are accepted at any time. Make checks payable to First Baptist Church Food Pantry. Call Pete Trippett, 354-7966 for information. Monthly financial reports are published. 

We thank you and praise God for your concern and love for your neighbors.
