Girl Scouts donate to Lord is my Help food pantry in Ocean Springs

This morning, a truck filled with donations rolled up to the Lord is my Help in Ocean Springs.

The donations were provided by Girl Scouts serving in troops within the St. Martin-Ocean Springs area. Scouts collected more than 600 items and their donations will be used to stock the shelves of the ministry’s pantry.

The food pantry prepares and distributes emergency groceries to families who are in need in the area. Lord is my Help General Manager Barbara Ruddiman said, “After the holidays and stuff, people are usually hurting. So, this really helps to stock my pantry. So, this helps make sure we have well rounded food to handout.”

Ocean Springs/ St. Martin Service Unit Manger Donna Schultz said, “They feel like they’re helping the people that may not be able to help themselves so they enjoy it. I think we did pretty good this year.”

The Lord is my Help cooks meals for 180 people every day. Their food pantry is used by 600 families every month.
