LCC received an update from Jayne Siou, Food Outreach Program Director, Put Your Hands Together Food Outreach Ministry of Immanuel, Hillside, on their expansion project to establish a permanent home for their pantry.
We are very excited to announce that the Village of Hillside has amended the ordinances and zoning requirements and allowed us to proceed with the construction of our new pantry building.
As you may know, PYHT has outgrown the space in our church where we operate our food pantry and food rescue-redistribution programs, requiring us to expand into a larger space and erect a building on our church property. The foundation and building will begin in the Spring of 2024 once adequate funding is received to cover the costs. We still have $20,000-$60,000 to raise by the end of April if we receive no grant funding by then.
One of the many lessons I have learned is always waiting on the Lord, His timing is perfect. His patience never wears thin, even when mine is hanging by a thread.
Thank you for your continued support and prayers!
