"I think people will prefer this compared to the bologna and ground meat we usually give out," laughed Shirley White, one of the main volunteers at God's Pantry in Garner. "Have you ever seen a more beautiful looking pork loin? These are the absolute perfect size and will be tremendously appreciated by the families that receive them."
After retiring from the military, Shirley continued a life of serving and helping others though his work with the pantry and finds himself there nearly four days a week.
Located within the United Methodist Church in Garner, God's Pantry serves nearly 110 families a month and relies on the unfailing support of volunteers like Shirley and Gar Grote.
"The pantry has been helping families in Garner and surrounding communities since 1971. They can come in on Monday mornings and Thursday afternoons," explained Gar. "We distribute food based on family size and need."
Thanks to Shirley and all of the volunteers that support God's Pantry and the community of Garner! We loved the opportunity to visit with you today, but more importantly, to donate 20 cases of pork loins that will provide 4,320 servings of pork for the families of Garner and surrounding communities.
