Putnam County Food Pantry Prepares for Christmas

Again this holiday season, the Putnam County Food Pantry, in collaboration with Toys in the Pantry, organizations, businesses, churches and schools from across the county, will be distributing Christmas baskets to local families in need.


This is the 33rd year the pantry has sponsored the basket project.

The baskets contain food and gifts for the children and senior citizens. Included are items for a full Christmas dinner, breakfast and pizza for Christmas Eve. The baskets will be distributed on the morning of Saturday, Dec. 19.

To support the basket project, cash and food donations continue to be needed.

Products such as coffee, hot chocolate, drinks, Jell-O, canned fruit, easy-to-prepare meals and personal care items will be especially appreciated.

A cash donation of $75 will support the cost of food for one average-size family. Donations may be sent to the Putnam County Food Pantry, Box 96, Granville, or deposited directly at the Granville National Bank. Food may be left at any of the county banks or at the food pantry.

Over the years, the Putnam County community has been tremendously supportive of the on-going work of the food pantry and the Christmas Basket Project.

The pantry board sends its thanks and wishes for a happy holiday and a new year of peace to the people of Putnam County.
