Independent Bank delivers donation to White Cloud food pantry
Benny’s Place an emergency food pantry has been feeding people throughout the community for well over 20 years after being started by the United Methodist Church as a way to help those in need. The pantry had its beginnings in the former parsonage and later moved to the basement of the old church building before landing in its current home at 1139 Newell. The house had been purchased by the church and the caretaker/sexton of the church (Benny) resided there until his death, hence the name Benny’s House.
Independent Bank donates to a non-profit organization each year as part of their commitment to their community. This year Betty Krueger and Jazmin Vanderwall from Independent Bank presented a check to Shaunna Baker of Benny’s House food pantry. This donation helps the pantry to continue its mission of fighting hunger in our area.
Benny’s House is open Monday through Thursday 10 AM to noon and Thursday 5-7 PM. Anyone can use the pantry if they have a need. No documents are needed.
