Due to unforeseen circumstances beyond our control, the Ellicott Helping Hands food pantry is going to close as of October 20, 2020.
You can go to Eastern Plains Community Pantry, 701 – 4th Street, Calhan, for government commodities like you’ve been getting from us. They are open Monday through Friday from 9:00 to 5:00. Or you can go to Tri-County Food Pantry across Highway 94 from the Rush Post Office for donated food and Senior Citizen Food. They are open on Wednesday from 8:30 to 7:00.
I am very sad about this. I have loved doing this for the past 11 years. I will miss seeing all of you.
Linda Thompson, director
