Food Pantry Sees Record Activity: April 7

Updated: Apr 27

Not an easy time for many households. Families are home full time, heads of households may have reduced hours at work, if they haven’t been laid off due to the Coronavirus. School lunch programs in place with Blair Schools and the CBC-Butch’s Deli school lunch efforts help.

The Washington County Food Pantry is seeing it’s most active season ever. Record numbers of families are seeking help with keeping groceries on the table during this Pandemic. The Joseph’s Coat thrift store proceeds normally helps fund the food pantry, but the thrift store is closed to help stem the spread of the virus.


The Pantry needs donations. Non-perishable food items are great, you can find a list online at JosephsCoat.org…but, in light of social distancing, you may want to consider providing funds for the pantry.


Joseph’s Coat can tap into lower cost foods – there by providing much more for the same amount of funds you would have spent on going to the store, purchasing those items, and bringing them to Joseph’s Coat – and possibly exposing yourself to Covid 19 in the process.


Go online to JosephsCoat.org and you will see a yellow tab with the word “Donate” in the upper right hand corner.


You won’t have to worry about using up your hand sanitizer in the process.
