The Food Pantry Poth Area is a nonprofit organization that functions completely through volunteerism, grants, churches, organizations, food drives, and foundations, and from the generosity of many individuals in the community. This holiday season the volunteers were busy helping residents and spreading joy.

During the Thanksgiving holiday, the “Homebound Project” provided 40 homebound with a box of food, personal necessities, turkey or ham, and household items.

On Dec. 19, Santa and volunteers from the pantry visited the Blessed Sacrament Parish Hall in Poth. There, Santa had lunch with the children and parents, sang Christmas carols, gave out door prizes, and distributed stuffed animals and little brown bags with fruit and candy to the youth population.

For the fourth year in a row, an anonymous donor provided the pantry with a handmade quilt for the Christmas Project.

For Christmas, the pantry volunteers delivered gifts for the elderly, which consisted of stuffed animals for residents of Regency Manor and Floresville Nursing Center.

For the “Needy Families With Children Project,” food boxes, personal necessities, toys, and household items were prepared and delivered to 35 families, totaling 74 adults and 111 children.

A number of donations made this possible, and the food pantry volunteers are grateful to everyone who contributed.

To make a donation, visit the pantry at 101 Railroad St., mail to P.O. Box 888, Poth, TX 78147, or call 210-393-9003.
