Throughout the year, your Spearfish Community Food Pantry provides needy neighbors in Spearfish and St. Onge with food that is donated locally or sometimes purchased from local groceries. Not surprisingly, the needs in our community -- like those across the country -- are increasing. In August, the pantry augmented food for some 251 families. The pantry continues to provide a vital service for our communities, but our service would not exist without the generous support of our members churches (listed at right). Each month, different churches step up to meet the need and perform a wide variety tasks at the Food Pantry. This month, we're pleased to welcome volunteers from the United Church of Christ in both St. Onge and Spearfish. Our heartfelt thanks to these volunteers, the churches they represent, and all the other church and non-church volunteers who give so generously of their time and talents. And a special thanks to all our neighbors who support the Spearfish Community Food Pantry!
