Dear Editor,

The Batesville Area Ministerial Association Food Pantry is so grateful to have been the recipient of a proactive grant of $4,000 from the Ripley County Community Foundation in association with their United Way Gift Fund. This very substantial grant, in addition to the extra help we received from all of the Batesville Area Ministerial Association churches, area organizations, businesses and many individual contributors, allowed us to provide our clients with the fixings for Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter dinners to share with their families. They could not have been more grateful.

We are so fortunate to live in an area where people take care of each other. We’ve seen that happen in this community time and again and the Ripley County Community Foundation is right there, front and center, at every turn.
