To Everything There is a Season

Oct 15, 2018 By

As seasons transitioned from the warmth and bright sun of summer to the crisp air of autumn, The Pantry faced a big transition as well.  Our last services were provided at John Knox Presbyterian Church on Friday, September 28.  Throughout that week and weekend we had volunteers helping us pack 33 years’ worth of memories and move.  Over 50 volunteers from different organizations helped us as we moved from JKPC.  We could not have done this so smoothly without the help of organizations like Cornerstone Church, Ada Christian Schools, East Kentwood High School National Honor Society, Kentwood Rotary, Sole Sisters, Encounter Church, Two Churches, Habitat for Humanity, and the State of Michigan Department of Human Services.  The work of so many people made the job seem a lot smaller.  We were so overwhelmed with joy at the amount of volunteer support that we could not pick just one Volunteer of the Month for September, and so made a unanimous vote to recognize each and every one as Volunteers of the Month.  It truly was a collective effort.  Thank you to everyone who came and helped!
