Nancy Keefe of SBRS Blue Bell has spearheaded an effort to support local charities. First on her list was the Daily Bread Community Food Pantry in Schwenksville. The Daily Bread Community Food Pantry is the fourth largest food pantry in Montgomery County, serving approximately 300 families or 1,200 individuals each month. Unlike many other food pantries, the Daily Bread Community Food Pantry attempts to provide a full week of emergency food for all those it serves. It aims to provide personal care products not covered by Food Stamps that hit hard at family food shopping budgets. This includes items like toilet paper, feminine care products, diapers and wipes, and hygiene supplies.
The pantry also provides food for special populations. For example, there are diabetic and gluten-free food and supplies, food for beloved family pets, and special packages for new mothers or guardians that include things like formula, diapers, and wipes.
Nancy and her friends were able to provide a carload of groceries including 4 large boxes of fresh produce to assist the pantry. If you wish to support them directly please check their website dailybreadcommunityfoodpantry.org.
In future weeks there will be drives to support St. Mary’s Shelter in Phoenixville, Salvation Army Family Shelter in Pottstown and the Laurel House in Norristown. SBRS is pleased to support Nancy in her efforts to assist the community.
