Special Distributions

The Lord's Pantry has special distributions throughout the year to benefit the families we serve. These specials are a welcome addition to the monthly food distribution.


Christmas in July

We recognize the need for our families to receive items once a year that are not available during their monthly food distribution. Our Christmas in July distribution consists of personal care, laundry detergent, dish soap and snack items.  Though we are always in need of these donations, we have more significant needs in May and June when we are preparing for this special distribution.

Summer Lunch Program

 Would you be willing to sponsor a child or family for our summer lunch program? The Lord's Pantry provides each eligible child a monthly prepacked food bag. We do this for the months of June, July and August. We started this program to supplement each of our family’s food supply during the summer months when kids are at home and the demand for food is higher.  The cost of this program is $25 per child per month or $75 per child for the summer.  To sponsor a child or family click on the picture below and you will be brought to JustGive.org to donate to this program.  Enter "Summer Lunch Program" in the program field to designate your gift.  

Back to School Distribution

We distribute new book bags and school supplies to our families with school-age children. We welcome monetary donations and/or school supplies and back packs in July for our distribution in August.  





Sneakers Distribution

In 2014, we began a new program distributing a brand new pair of sneakers to every school age child.  We partner with R U Villa in order to provide higher quality sneakers.  If you would like to support this program, we accept cash donations to help offset the cost of purchasing these sneakers.  To donate for this program click on the picture below and enter "Sneaker Program" in the program field to designate your gift.  The average cost of pair of sneakers for this program is $40.  



We distribute over 250 Thanksgiving Baskets every year to families the Saturday before Thanksgiving. These baskets include traditional thanksgiving dinner items , appetizer items, breakfast foods and desserts.  We depend on the generosity of individuals, families, churches, groups and corporations to make this distribution a success.  If you would like to donate food items, please print our Thanksgiving ChecklistThis checklist identifies the items we place in each families basket.  We also accept donations of frozen turkeys.
