-- — Dear Editor,
Batesville Area Ministerial Association Food Pantry volunteers would like to thank the Ripley County Community Foundation for the $2,000 proactive grant recently awarded.
With the funds provided, we were able to purchase nourishing food and essential personal care items for close to 200 low-income households.
Operating a food pantry is a very expensive proposition and the citizens of our city are very supportive. But the burden is definitely lighter due to the help we have received from the RCCF.
Foundation officials have consistently demonstrated their care and concern for the overall good of the members of our community and we are very grateful!
