Help Support Those Less Fortunate, And Get a Thank You Reward For Your Generosity

 

Heirloom Classics has had a favorite "Helping Organization" since before the beginning of the store.  Through past efforts from our very generous customers, we have been able to donate over 2.5 tons of food and household items to the Loaves and Fishes Food Pantry at St. Timothy's Episcopal Church, 2601 East Thompson Road. 

 

First off, if there is anyone in need of food, the pantry operates the second Tuesday of the month.  They have both morning and evening hours.  I don't know all the particulars, but I know that you need ID for everyone in the household and proof of where you live, like a utility bill.

 

Second,  HCI would like to boost their food pantry items between now and the end of the year.  Soooooo......anyone that brings in donations for the pantry with a value of $2.00 or more will receive 15% off their purchase for that day.  You can take advantage of this offer as many times as you care to throughout the season.

 

Usually we ask people to donate things that cannot be purchased with food stamps, but with the holiday season upon us, canned goods, boxed goods, peanut butter, jelly, diapers, sanitary needs, toilet paper and things like potatoes would be appreciated.  Remember that these are suggestions, and we will accept anything that can sit on the shelf for a month.  (please be aware of "use by" dates)  If you are so inclined, you can also just give money and that will be used close to food pantry day to fill gaps.  We will have a special button on the checkout just for donations.

 

The food pantry also appreciates new children's and adult's gloves this time of year. 

 

Please, if you need help, contact the food pantry, but if you have the means, be generous.  We have all needed help at some time in our lives.  Ed and Judy thank you, as we know how compassionate our customers have been in the past.
