The Holiday Train will be coming through Columbus on Friday, December 9th at 9:00pm. The train brings joy to those along the route while raising money and awareness for local food banks. The Columbus/Fall River Food Pantry will be receiving cash/check donations and non-perishable food donations by the train depot starting at 7:00pm on December 9th. The Pantry is currently in need of toilet paper and the following canned goods: soup, fruit, meat, vegetables.
If you are not able to attend on December 9th, monetary donations may always be dropped off at Farmers & Merchants Union Bank and non-perishable, non-expired food donations can be dropped off in the bin at Columbus Pick n Save.
The Columbus/Fall River Food Pantry is currently helping 196 families in the Columbus and Fall River School Districts. Our mission is to provide emergency food and essential non-food items on a temporary basis to those in need, regardless of circumstances. We are comprised completely of volunteers from local churches and communities, and we are housed in the back of the Columbus Senior Center. We receive donations of cash, food, and non-food items from individuals and businesses in the area. 100% of the donations go towards assisting people in our local communities. Thank you for your continued support!
