Pantry in need
local picture
Helen Grier, in the foreground, and Janice Baker, help stock a few items on shelves at CALL Food Pantry along North Main Street in Celina. The Rev. Ken Baker, vice president and executive director of the food pantry, said donations have diminished in recent weeks due to a variety of reasons including a diversion of federal and state assistance to southern states where flooding and fires have taken place. With school out and children at home, the number of clients coming to the agency continues to increase. In June, CALL served 536 families (up approximately 100 from May) and 1,532 individuals. Items most needed right now are canned soups and vegetables, crackers, body soap, toilet paper and other hygiene items.
