News and Events
Save the Date!
Join us at the annual Pantry fundraiser on Thursday May 7, 6:00 to 7:30pm. This year we are holding a Trivia Night. Gather your friends and form a team, or join one when you arrive in the First United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall. We will serve lots of appetizers and dessert while you put your mastery of trivia to the test. Come join us for a fun evening and support the work of the Pantry!
Stadium Thriftway Brings the Meat (and Poultry)!
Stadium Thriftway recently donated enough hams and turkeys for us to prepare 4 hot meals. Donations like this keep the cost of our hot meal program down. We served a turkey dinner on February 15, and had enough meat left on the bones that boiled it down to stock for a fabulous soup at a another meal.
Curves Food Drive
It's time again for Curves' membership and food drive. During the month of March, the North Tacoma Curves collects food for My Sister's Pantry. These drives normally collect 4,000 to 5,000 pounds of food for us. Thank you Curves for your continued support!
Recycling Helps Food Banks
- FREE recycling service.
- Uses only 1 parking space. Dimensions are 6' x 5'.
- Raises much needed cash for Local Food Banks.
- Collection bins for magazines, newspaper and mixed paper.
- Community contributions of recyclable materials are turned into funds to help support the hungry.
We all know that recycling is good for the environment, but did you know it can help those in need?
For 16 years and counting the "Food Bank Recycling Program" has raised over $250,000 for local Food Banks, and with your help that amount can continue to grow.
Fibres International Inc. places a community recycling bin for FREE. Materials collected are turned into cash, and proceeds from those materials are donated to the Food Bank of your choice. Quite simply this program is worry-free, we maintain the bins and determine the frequency the bin is serviced. All we need from you is one parking space! Working together we can help the local Food Banks in their goal of helping our community.
For more information on how you can help My Sister's Pantry by recycling, contact Kelly Turner, Recycling Rep at Fibres International at (425) 478-2003 or by email kturner @ fibres.net.
