City Mission Intends to Host Pantries for 3-4 Weeks - Each Pantry Client will Receive a Bag of Groceries Featuring Non-Perishable Food Items and Paper Products

As there are many individuals who are experiencing financial hardship due to the COVID-19 business closures,  City Mission is coordinating Pop-Up Pantries for anyone in need at four different locations across Washington County.  Depending on the quantities of supplies secured and the extent of the virus’ impact, City Mission intends to host the pantries for three to four weeks.  Each pantry client will receive a bag of groceries featuring non-perishable food items and paper products. 

It is anticipated that the $10,000 grant from the WCCF will help to create 500 bags for distribution.  The first Pop-Up Pantries will be held on Monday, March 23 from 9 to 11 a.m. at City Mission Thrift Store in Washington and 1 to 3 p.m. at City Mission Thrift Store in Canonsburg.  On Thursdays, the Pop-Up Pantries will be held from 9 to 11 a.m. at City Mission Thrift Store in Monongahela and 1 to 3 p.m. on the City Mission Main Campus.  “We will not be verifying anyone’s ‘need’ with paperwork or documentation, we will just be helping those who ask for help,” remarked Dr. Sally Mounts, Washington City Mission Chief Development Officer.
