Foothills Rural Community Ministry have set their hours for the month of September. All three of these programs offered by the ministry are located at the Presbyterian Church in Holland Patent.

The pantry is in need of donated non perishable food items. The pantry serves an average of 160 families from the seven townships in our service area. Those families that use the food pantry may also get pet food from Sarah’s Pet Pantry.
The Country Corner Thrift Store is not open on Wednesdays. The thrift store offers good used clothing and small household items at reasonable prices. Bag sales will be available the first and third Saturday each month. Bags containing 20 items or less will sell for $4. The proceeds from the store support the food pantry. The store is in need of good used clothing and small household items. Donated items may be dropped off on any day the ministry is open, or on Monday and Thursday each week during our office hours from 9 a.m.-1 p.m.
The ministry also offers farmers’ market coupons. The Trenton Farmers’ Market is open every Saturday in September from 9 a.m.-1 p.m.
