First Church of Christ has been a faithful supporter of GO Pantry for many years. They not only give financial support to GO Pantry, they create opportunities for people to be God’s hands and serve the community. A goal of First Church is to get people on a path of discipleship, encouraging them to get involved in their community.
Mike Muldernick, Missions Director of First Church, sees how much people truly want to serve. He has seen first hand members of his congregation stepping up to help GO Pantry, knowing they are helping kids in their local schools, or in some cases even their own kids.
Each Spring First Church works together to fill over 300 GO Boxes for GO Pantry! Their collective effort is a big part of our Spring Break GO Box program. They also frequently provide needed help delivering GO Boxes to schools. What a great gift you are to GO Pantry and to our community!
First Church, thank you for being such a blessing! We can’t thank you enough for blessing us with your kind hearts and financial support!
ADM, the Archer Daniels Midland Company, has been a longtime, faithful supporter of GO Pantry. Being in the food processing industry, they understand the importance of nutrition in growing children and how being well nourished is a key component of a child’s ability to focus and learn at school.
Lisa Roberts, Regional Environmental Director at ADM, has children in the Northern Kentucky school system and saw first hand the need to help children in our area who are experiencing food insecurity. She realized that GO Pantry’s mission to help those same children was in line with one of ADM’s core areas of giving. She brought the idea of helping GO Pantry to ADM and they have been faithful supporters ever since!
Not only does ADM support GO Pantry financially in a BIG way, they also organize service days for their employees to come help in the warehouse. Recently, ADM employees helped pack GO Bags to be sent to local children in need.
ADM, we can’t thank you enough for your kind hearts and financial support!
Dollar General has a long history of serving their community. At the core of their company is The Dollar General Literacy Foundation. It helps individuals of all ages pursue their educational goals by investing in literacy programs that help students learn to read, prepare for the high school equivalency test or learn English. In addition, Dollar General realizes the need to serve children who may be experiencing food insecurity, as being well nourished is a key component to academic success.
The founder of Dollar General was raised in a home where he himself experienced food insecurity. Amazingly, with only a fourth grade level education, he started the company that grew into the multi-million dollar organization that Dollar General is today.
Recently, Dollar General Corporate gave the Walton Distribution Center a $10,000 Employee Choice Award to donate to a local charity. Employees nominated and then selected the charity that would receive the donation.
Reshaun Patterson, Human Resource Generalist at the Dollar General Distribution Center in Walton says, “One of our core values is serving others. GO Pantry’s values align with ours, which is why we chose GO Pantry to receive the award”. We are beyond grateful to be chosen as the recipient of this award! We can’t thank Dollar General enough for your support! Thank you for having a heart for GO Pantry and our mission to help children in our area who are experiencing food insecurity.
