Ministries Unlimited changed service hours on Feb. 6 in order to accommodate patrons, volunteers and donation drop-off.
The new hours are Monday, Tuesday and Friday from 9 a.m. to noon and Wednesday and Thursday from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Patrons must call a day in advance to schedule a time to shop the pantry for food. Shopping appointments are available Tuesday – Friday. The pantry will only make appointments for the current week. Anyone wanting to drop off a donation may do so during open hours Monday – Friday. Please knock on the door marked Donation Drop-Off and someone will assist you.
The pantry said after its first week of allowing patrons to shop the pantry and providing bread, meat and dairy on a consistent basis, the change has been well received. Pantry volunteers do ask that patrons only take what they need in order for them to be able to continue to provide a wide range of pantry staples.
The pantry is also looking forward to expanding its variety of perishable items in the future. For opportunities to volunteer please call Kathy Scheller, Director at 618-505-5053.
The pantry thanks the community and local churches for helping its efforts to continue providing assistance for those in need.
