The Shepherd House Food Pantry at Ebenezer E.C. Church will be open on Saturday, Feb. 13 from 9 a.m. to noon. Recipients must reside within the Jim Thorpe Area School District. The pantry is located at 441 Center Ave. in Jim Thorpe. Please call (570) 325-2855 for more information or to volunteer.

This cold winter has meant high heating costs for some families and less money left for nutritious food. Please remember to check on your neighbors and encourage them to visit the food pantry if they are in need of food assistance.
