Veterans still serving community state and country
PALMER - The American Legion, Chism-Landers Post 361 in Ennis became aware that the Palmer First Assembly of God food pantry was running low on supplies and funds.
The church started the pantry two years ago with the objective of helping those in need in the community.
The American Legion members, The American Legion Auxiliary and the Sons of The American Legion began a food drive in November.
The bags and boxes of food were delivered to Pastor Carmen Ingram and the Palmer First Assembly of God Dec. 15, in time to help families at Christmas.
Along with the food donation, Dan Cook, Post Commander, presented a check for $1,000 to Pastor Carmen Ingram to help purchase supplies for the food pantry.
But, more donations are needed.
In December, the Palmer Assembly of God helped 12 families with a weeks worth of groceries.
In Ellis County we have veterans still serving for God and Country and a small church with a big heart reaching out to the community.
