Huntsville Junior Service League is always happy to help partner with and support charitable organizations in Huntsville and Walker County. One such organization has published a request for help.
There is an urgent need at the Good Shepherd Mission in Huntsville to restock the pantry. The mission is a vital part of our community and helps to provide food and shelter to many of our less fortunate neighbors. At the mission, an average of 1600 meals are served every month, free of charge to those in need. Also, the food bank distributes groceries to approximately 140 Walker County households per week. Without assistance, many families will go hungry. If you are interested in helping, the largest, ongoing needs are as follows…
- White Rice
- Dry Pinto or Black Beans
- Canned soup
- Canned Red/Navy Beans
- Canned meats
- Peanut Butter
- Cheesy Mac
Please consider adding a few of the most needed items to your next trip to the grocery store. The mission will divide large donations into the appropriate sizes for the families they serve, so bulk-sized bags of the dry items are more than welcome. The mission is located at 1005 MLK Drive.
