Food Pantry grateful

To the Editor: We wish to express a sincere thank you to the Boy Scouts of America for the many hands that helped in their annual “scouting for food” campaign this past week. They were able to collect over 2,000 cans of food! The Navarro County Food Pantry ministry provides food assistance to those in our county who are unable to provide enough foods to meet their families needs.

Last year the NCFP assisted 29,500 individuals, an increase from 2010 by 34 percent. As the lingering bad economy brings more new faces to its doors, NCFP is announcing initiatives to “ReThink Hunger,” focused on providing healthier food, developing innovative new ways to extend reach and operations, and improving lives of the people it serves.

Through local farmers and the North Texas Food Bank we are able to provide access to more fresh produce — a luxury which many of our clients cannot afford. It is going to take the efforts of all of our citizens to continue to meet the need in our area, an area where one in five people are living in hunger. Food prices have increased, with costs for in-demand foods like peanut butter up 30 percent or more, nationally.

NCFP must raise 33 percent more money compared to last year in order to keep up with increased need for food assistance and to offset the cost of more nutritious items not readily donated. If you would like to donate to the Navarro County Food Pantry please send checks to PO Box 1263, Corsicana, TX 75151.

Thankful for support

To the Editor: Thank you! Thank you!

Thank you to the parents, the community, the foundations, and banks.  We don’t want to name names because we may forget someone. You have been so supportive though volunteers’ hours, your monetary donations, your encouragement and your prayer for Mary Peterson Child Care Center in year 2011.  We deeply appreciate your love for us.

Through your actions in year 2011, you have shown us love. May God continue to bless you is our prayer.

    If you are one of those Americans favoring term limits there is good news. Term limits exist — they are called ELECTIONS.

    Now that the holidays for 2013 are behind us and we’ve had a brief moment to reflect back on all that has transpired, I can say that we at The Salvation Army are humbled and amazed by how this community came together to help meet the needs of so many struggling people.

    As a volunteer with the Angels of Corsicana Troop Support, most of my time all year is spent on items, especially Christmas cards, to fill the stockings when we pack in December.
