We are encouraging all members to help LWML collect Mite money.  There is a big Mite box in the Narthex for your
donations.  It can be a check (Made out to St. Peter’s LWML), or cash.  Please help us to fill the box.

Humboldt Community Food Pantry

Due to the Coronavirus situation, the following will be continued for the Humboldt Food Pantry:

The Pantry will not accept any donations of food nor non-food items (clothing/household items/toys, etc.).

As the virus restrictions increases, so will the demand to seek help and food from the local food pantry, therefore, we encourage the community to support us and make monetary donations to the pantry to help offset the increased expenses.  Monetary donations may be mailed to the Humboldt Ministerial Alliance C/O 204 N. 7th Street Humboldt KS. 66748.  The Humboldt Food Pantry, 718 Bridge Street,  is open every TUESDAY from 5-6 PM.

THE FEEDING AMERICA PROGRAM (Wal Mart Donations) distributes food on the SECOND and FOURTH MONDAYS of the month from 10-11 AM at the Humboldt Senior Center/ Pantry 718 Bridge Street.  This is a “first come/first serve” type distribution with no guarantee that there will be any food boxes left by 11 AM.

ANYONE who lives within USD# 258, who is experiencing food insecurity, is encouraged to come to the Food Pantry And to the Feeding America Programs.

You may help support the Humboldt Food Pantry by taking your gently used clothing/household items and furniture to “Everything Fitz” and designate the sales to the Humboldt Food Pantry.    

Christmas store: We plan to proceed with the Christmas store this year.  We will have it on December 12th for 9 -11 AM.  Mask required.  If you have anything you would like to donate to the store, please leave it in the office.  We will have a sign-up sheet for volunteers at a later date.   If you have any questions, please contact Carman Huse 620-365-9311 or Alicia Schomaker at 620-473-0679.
