Georgetown food bank searches for new place to call home

By  | 

Today is one of the last days volunteers at God's Blessings Food Pantry in Georgetown will be packing up and distributing boxes of food for the needy.

The group set up shop in August in a retail space in the Factory Stores of America Outlet Mall in Georgetown. They've been there with the agreement that they'd have to leave if any stores came in wanting to pay rent. This is the second time in a year they've had to move.

Now, Volunteers with the food bank, run through New Beginnings Church in Georgetown, are hopeful folks in the community will make donations so that they can buy their own building.

"It means a lot to get food. Poor people got to come get some," explains DannyNeace, who has reluctantly become a regular. He comes once a month to pick up a box of food.

"Anybody old like me who can't get out and make nothing, got to come get food."

Neace says like volunteers, he's concerned abot the food bank's future. Everything will have to move out in mid March.

Donations to help can be made at New Beginnings Church in Georgetown, located at 929 South Broadway in the same shopping center as Scott Supply.
