WELLS -- Wells Wesleyan Church joined forces with Wells Community Food Pantry during Old Home Days here Aug. 1-2 to increase awareness and raise funds to help families in need.

This was accomplished with a Pie Toss Booth. For $1 or the highest bid pie tossers could put a pie in the face of someone from the community or someone of their choice.

The event raised $711 and went through 45 large tubs of whipped topping.

The Wells Food Pantry, located inside Wells Community Hall on State Route 30, has been in existence for a number of years now. When times are tough, it makes sure neighbors can get what they need.

The pantry offers non-perishable foods, frozen food and in-season produce.

Run solely by volunteers, the food pantry is entirely dependent on donations in order to supply local families and individuals with assistance. Frozen foods and in-season produce are accepted as well as non-perishable canned or boxed items.

It is open every Thursday from 9-11 a.m.

For more information contact either

Wells Community Food Pantry Director Sharon Grisenthwaite at 924-2269 or Wells Wesleyan Church Pastor Rob Ketchum at 924-2211 or
