To The Daily Sun,
The Alton Community Services/Food Pantry owes its success to its donors, Board of Directors, its dedicated staff and the many volunteers. They have been so generous with their time and donations.
The new federal guideline, published July 2015, is $419 for a family of four. Or participation in one of the following: fuel assistance (it is not easy to apply — call 524-5512), WIC, commodity supplemental food program, temporary assistance to needy families, aid to permanently and totally disabled, homeless, food stamps, Medicaid, aid to the needy blind, old age assistance, supplemental security income, subsidized housing, county, city or town welfare.
We are still sponsored by the churches of Alton: The Be Free Church, Community Church and St. Katherines. You may drop off your donations to any of the following: Alton Home & Lumber (aka Reuben's), Maxfield's Realty or Profile Bank. The churches collect weekly.
We are recognized as a non-profit organization and your donation is tax deductible.
