Mtn. Grove Love Center Food Pantry moving to new location

Posted: Tuesday, August 2, 2016 2:51 pm

The Mountain Grove Love Center Food Pantry is closed through Friday, Aug. 5, while the facility is relocated to its new location at 117 East Second St.

Both the food pantry and thrift store are included in the move and they will also be adding to their inventory clothing and other items left at the location by One Accord.

It is anticipated that the facility will be open by August 9.

The facility’s cooler will be one of the last things moved. Keith Miller, Miller Electric, and Matt Drake, Shannon Heating & Cooling, are contributing assistance and materials for electrical work and the move of the cooler.

The facility will be accepting donations of clothing and furniture that are in good condition.  The Love Center is a 501(c)(3) facility. Clothing can be dropped off during regular business hours from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday. It is also hoped to expand service to Monday.  Persons can also contact the food pantry to see if arrangements can be made to off hours donations.

Kevin Jenkins, facility director, stated that the Love Center Food Pantry will continue to be run as it has been in the past with new persons needing to come by to register.

Jenkins stated that the facility will also accept donations for assistance in replacing the roof on the building.
