Santa Makes An Early Stop At The Nelson County Pantry

Photo By Steve & Olivia Ellis : Santa Made an early stop this past weekend at The Nelson County Pantry to help with Christmas distributions. He was joined in this photo by Four of Santa's helpers, Quinn, Sophia, Savannah and Maddy. They distributed over 217 children's bags of nutritional snacks which they filled last Sunday at their Children's Food Pantry in Rockfish Presbyterian Church in Nellysford.

Nelson County, Virginia

Christmas could have been pretty sad this year for the people at The Nelson County Pantry, and families being served by the pantry. Back in November we told you about a Thanksgiving disaster that nearly ruined the holiday for people needing help. All of the turkeys thawed and spoiled due to a freezer failure. The Pantry used their already purchased Christmas turkeys to make up the difference at Thanksgiving, but then had none for Christmas 2011. Thanks to your help the response was overwhelming and more than enough money came in to bridge the gap!

Due to the support and help from the Nelson community and way beyond from places like Australia and Tampa, families in need will have a tremendous Christmas dinner this year!

What better gift could there be this Christmas!
