"Kindness is stepping out of your world to make someone else's better."

     Please think of our Food Pantry when you go grocery shopping. We have had 20 people in just one day (close to our normal month's patronage) and our shelves are BARE! We had to put a sign on the door that the Pantry was depleted, asking people to come back next week in the hope donations would come in over the weekend.


We are out of canned meats, potato flakes, cold and hot cereals, pasta sauce, snacks, jello, canned fruit, coffee, tea and popcorn. You name it and we need it! The only good supply is for boxed macaroni and cheese and peanut butter and we could still use more. 


The need for food this holiday season has been amazing. In three days, we gave away 15 turkeys and 9 hams and we still have a week to go before Christmas.  All those special foods are gone.


Donations can be left at any Chesapeake City Church or on Tuesday and Wednesday, 9:00AM-noon at the Chesapeake City Ecumenical Association, 227 Basil Ave, Chesapeake City, MD. 


Thank you for considering your needy neighbors this Christmas season!
