Community Partnerships Fill Needs in Crisis

April 28, 2020 10:44 AM


In the unprecedented times we are in, the needs of our community are ever changing.  Russ Mathews, Market President of Great Lakes Bay Region from Horizon Bank sums it up best in the following statement “The Midland County Emergency Food Pantry Network anticipates an increased demand for food during the COVID-19 crisis.  Current supplies are depleting rapidly as members of our community are experiencing loss of jobs or reduced hours for working and school children are at home increasing the need for more food, household items and personal hygiene products.  Horizon Bank is proud to offer support to our community by helping EFPN keep the shelves stocked.”   


The Board of the EFPN is grateful for the donations from its community partners who make a large impact on the ability to fulfill the mission of “Always Food in Every Home” through numerous programs like the mobile food pantries.  For the latest information on the dates and locations of the mobiles you can go to for all the information or call (989)486-9393 to set up an appointment at one of our 8 pantry locations.  To donate food or self care items you can drop them off at 503 S. Saginaw Rd in Midland or donate online at the above link.


As we wade through this time of uncertainty as a community the EFPN will need the constant support of corporate donors like Horizon Bank, individual donors and volunteers for the foreseeable future.


“No one is more cherished in this world that someone who lightens the burden of another”
