You've no doubt seen the food barrels at area businesses and likely you have been a generous donor to them, but the Muskego Food Pantry is hoping that you'll take them up on an invitation to see where it goes from there.
"We're out in the public at events like Jammin' on Janesville, but we'd like for people to stop by and see our facilities, take a tour and appreciate what our mission here is, and how important their support has been," said coordinator Wendy Gajewski.
The shelves were full for the holidays, she said, but all-too quickly have become bare again.
"It's more than a once-a-year thing, we have people who are here every week," Gajewski explained.
The pantry serves on average 75 - 80 families on a regular basis, and because of costs have had to reserve what they spend on just food items. So toilet paper, kleenex and the like is secondary.
The open house will be held on Tuesday, Jan. 22, from 6-8 p.m, at their facility at W189 S8184 Mercury Drive, which is on the southeast corner of Apollo Drive and Mercury. They will have information about their hours of operation and how you can help feed those in need in Muskego.
Refreshments will be served, and your questions are welcome.
