Day 5

*** Click the donate button below! ***


Day 5: It is Saturday, December 18, and for the second time we will have a distribution day at the Armory National Guard to limit the spread of Covid (this decision was made in September). We are very thankful this year for the Armory National Guard who continues to provide us a location to pack and distribute our baskets. We are very fortunate to have Sgt. Farmer and his staff who make the armory accessible to this community project that helps families in Blount County. You can help those families by donating to the Empty Pantry Fund
