Local food pantry raising money for upgrades


More than three decades ago, a group of women in Sealy noticed that many families were facing hunger in their area. To combat this need, they created the Sealy Christian Pantry to help their neighbors in need. Now, they’re raising money through RedBasket.org to upgrade their facilities and continue their mission.
The Sealy Christian Food Pantry aims to show Christian love to others by providing food to the needy, disabled, elderly, and those in emergency situations. They offer weekly food distributions as well as delivery services to the elderly. Last year alone, the pantry served 4,863 families. Due to demand, the organization is looking to make some updates to their space.
“With the numbers we serve continuing to increase each year, we strive to make our current space as efficient as possible,” said Belinda Edge, vice president of fundraising.
In partnership with WoodmenLife Texas Chapter 105, Sealy Christian Pantry has created an online fundraiser through RedBasket.org, a fee-free fundraising website sponsored by WoodmenLife. The group hopes to raise $4,590 to purchase handicap-accessible ramps and doors, updated shelving, and a new upright freezer.
This fundraiser will run through Nov. 11. To learn more or to make a tax-deductible donation, please visit https://redbasket.org/1778/sealy-christian-pantry.
