After a weather related cancellation of the January distribution day, the organizers for Ruby’s Pantry in Austin are looking forward to helping area residents with their February Pantry on Thursday, February 17th at the Mower County Fairgrounds. The distribution starts at 4:00, or when those that distribute the food are set up, and will go until 5:30 or all the items are gone. Each bundle donation is $22 exact cash with a two bundle per vehicle limit, which is subject to change depending on how many guests come through the Fairgounds.
Bob Rosel, one of the organizers for the event emphasized in a news release that volunteers are needed, and anyone interested in helping can come to the Fairgrounds starting around 3:00 p.m. Thursday. Rosel stated that it usually takes approximately 2 to 2 1/2 hours to set up, distribute and clean up at each distribution.
The next Ruby’s Pantry distribution day in Austin will back at the Mower County Fairgrounds on March 17th. If anyone has any questions you can call Grace Lutheran Church in Austin at (507) 433-3445.
