August is going to be a big month for our organization.  We have the annual softball tournament which always provides much needed monetary donations and we have the food barrel drive which helps support the pantry through the fall. 
 
Softball registration is up and running just click on our events page to get signed up.  The games are all in the name of fun and raising money for those in need in the community. 
 
If you are a business owner we would love to drop off a barrel at your place of business for the month of August in hopes your staff and clients will help us fill the pantry.  There is also a heated competition to decorate the barrel.  This year's theme is arcade games.  Get those creative juices flowing and decorate a barrel.  If you would like a barrel please contact Jim Meyer at the Community Center 816-847-6230
