GREEN COVE SPRINGS – Youth and adult volunteers from the Fleming Island Ward of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints gathered together with volunteers of the Food Pantry of Green Cove Springs to assemble new shelving and restock and organize food transferred from temporary storage after recent renovations. The help received reduced the work time from approximately a week into one to two days.
Bishop John O’Rourke said, “I am grateful for the opportunity the Fleming Island Ward had to provide service for the Green Cove Springs Food Pantry. This organization does so much good work for our community and we are glad to be able to support this great organization in their efforts to empower others in the surrounding communities.”
The renovations were made possible when city officials applied for and received a CARES Act grant to aid in desperately needed renovations to the pantry’s 30-year-old location. City officials also encouraged food pantry leaders to apply for all available grants.
“Construction took the existing building down to the walls… replaced and repaired everything from electrical to shelving,” Wynema Lovell, managing director of the Food Pantry, said.
The pantry currently serves residents of Green Cove Springs, Middleburg, Clay Hill, Maxville and Fleming Island.
