Volunteers with the Mount Savage Ecumenical Food Pantry load groceries and other staples into boxes Wednesday morning in the social hall of St. Patrick’s Catholic Church. Among those working on the left, from front to back, are Albert Ryan; Francis Ryan, vice president; Barbara Corbin; Elaine Miller, president; Dick Gaughan; Judy Bohn and Ann Friend. On the right, same order, are Bonnie Gaughan; Sharon Logsdon, treasurer; Mildren Walkins and others. The pantry is operated by members of St. Patrick, Mount Savage United Methodist Church, St. George’s Episcopal Church and Ellerslie United Methodist Church. The boxes were being prepared for residents who had already signed up for assistance, but anyone who needs food may contact one of the churches. The pantry distributes the food boxes four times a year — Easter, the Fourth of July, Thanksgiving and Christmas.
