Food pantry for Wells only

Saturday, August 09, 2014 - Updated: 10:53 PM

Dear Editor,

After much discussion we have decided to open the Wells Food Pantry to residents of Wells only. We will no longer include residents of other towns.

With the increase in patrons to the pantry and the fact that more than 95 percent of our donations are given by the residents of Wells, and our volunteers are all residents of Wells, we feel this is the only fair option we have at this time.

All residents of Hamilton County may use the county-run food pantry in Indian Lake, which is operated for the use of Hamilton county residents.

The Wells Food Pantry is totally funded by donations and staffed by volunteers. The Wells Food Pantry does not receive any financial support from the town, county or state.

We are sorry to have to make this hard choice at this time, but feel we need to serve the needs of our own before reaching out to others.

Sharon K. Grisenthwaite, director

Wells Food Pantry
