Neighbor to Neighbor seeks food donations

Neighbor to Neighbor of Jefferson County is currently experiencing a severe shortage of non-perishable food items.

“We haven’t seen the shelves this bare in quite some time,” said Charlotte England, executive director of Neighbor to Neighbor. “We’ve seen a decline in donations recently, but of course, the need continues to grow. We have senior citizens who depend on us for food on a monthly basis. We provide canned goods for families in emergency situations and we feed more than 2,000 people each month in our soup kitchen.”

Anyone who would like to donate non-perishable food items should call Neighbor to Neighbor at 534-2883 or drop donations off at the office at 1419 Pine St. in Pine Bluff.
