St. Vincent de Paul pantries encouraging those in need of food to visit pantries
The St. Vincent de Paul locations in Marquette and Gwinn want to make sure the public knows they have plenty of food.
MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - The St. Vincent de Paul locations in Marquette and Gwinn want to make sure the public knows they have plenty of food.
Recently, volunteers at both locations have noticed a decrease in the number of people getting assistance. They say donations continue to come in and they have the resources to help those in need.
While the reason for the decrease in numbers isn’t known, those at St. Vincent de Paul say they just want to make sure nobody goes without assistance if needed.
“We have plenty of food, we are open, hopefully, very convenient hours and we don’t want anyone to go hungry and basically if you qualify for food stamps you qualify to get food from the pantry,” said St. Vincent de Paul Pantry Manager Jacy Williams.
The pantry in Marquette is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. and the first Thursday of the month from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m.
In Gwinn, the hours are Monday 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., Friday 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. and the first Saturday of the month from 10:00 a.m. to noon.
