Little Free Pantry
Donations from the parish are welcome. Put them in the box in Vail Hall. The pantry was generously donated by Gustavo Gutierrez and Janie Glade, a long-time friend of Annunciation, who will also maintain it. DONATION GUIDELINES: Food should be in easy-open containers that don’t require a can opener. We also need travel-sized toothpaste, toothbrushes, small packs of wet wipes and diapers, Ensure for infants and adults, and small packets of dry food such as cereal.
Stock the Little Free Pantry Competition - FINAL COUNT
The GOLD TEAM has won! After an early and consistent lead by the Black Team, and then a dramatic back-and-forth, the Gold Team has pulled ahead and won the competition with an impressive 263 total items, beating the Black Team's total 232 items. Thank you to everyone who contributed! The Little Free Pantry is a great way that we serve the Broadmoor community, so please continue to bring in items throughout the year, so we can keep providing for our neighbors in need.
