Since we first opened the Pantry Doors April 17, 2015, we have been amazed at the amount of support that poured out from our communities for our Veterans. We’ve had so many food drives by churches, individuals, Scout troops, Schools, plus financial donations from individuals, that we have always had enough to fill grocery bags full of food for our struggling veterans. We can’t thank you enough, and your support has been an incredible blessing for so many vets!
Here’s a listing of the businesses and organizations that have helped us and donated to us over the months that we wish to thank. If anyone sees their organization or group missing, please send us a note and we will get you on as soon as possible.

In addition, we have received financial donations from many private individuals to whom we send out a great big thank you!
But most of all, we want all of our donors to realize just what a tremendous difference you’re making in the lives of our veterans who have come to us for help. These span the range from Korean War vets, to Vietnam vets, to most recently Iraq and Afghanistan veterans.
Whether living on a tiny pension, to suffering from Agent Orange, wounded in the recent conflicts, dealing with PTSD, or unemployed, underemployed, or homeless, your support is letting them know that they are not forgotten, that you, the people they took an oath to protect, really do care. You can’t imagine what that means to them!
Thank you all for SUPPORTING THE 1%!!
