Calvary Chapel Food Pantry Receives Freezer Grant

 

Volunteers working at the Calvary Chapel Food Pantry are expanding their pantry offerings, thanks to an Operation Round Up grant to purchase two freezers.

 

The Cuivre River Electric Community Trust Board recently awarded $1,439.76 for the project, made possible by funds donated by Cuivre River members. The freezers are up and running, already in use.

Calvary Chapel Church Assistant Pastor Mike Dallas says, “We are able to obtain free food from our distributor, but haven't been able to accept it due to lack of freezer space.”

 

“We appreciate the donation," Dallas stresses. "It’s a huge blessing to us.”  During 2014, the Calvary Chapel Food Pantry assisted nearly 9,000 people.

 

The Calvary Chapel Food Pantry is located adjacent to Calvary Chapel Church at 28 Snyder Road in Troy.  As of February 3, the pantry is open on Tuesdays from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.  Area residents who need to visit the food pantry can call the church at 636-528-5223.

 

Cuivre River Electric Cooperative members donate to the Community Trust through Operation Round Up as they voluntarily pay the "rounded up" amount on their monthly electric bills. Funds are administered by seven volunteer trustees who represent areas within St. Charles, Lincoln, Warren and Pike counties where Cuivre River offers electric service, although applicants do not have to receive Cuivre River electric service to be eligible.

 

Operation Round Up addresses unmet needs in the areas of community and emergency services, home weatherization, health, youth and education. Grant applications are available at Cuivre River Electric Cooperative offices in Troy and Lake Saint Louis, at www.cuivre.com, or by calling 800-392-3709, ext. 230, 234 or 330.
