REDDING, Calif. — A church in the Northstate is helping the Redding Salvation Army fill its pantry with a truckload of food dropped off on Monday.
Volunteers were getting the job done with a bucket brigade at the Salvation Army headquarters on Larkspur Lane.
Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints Communication Specialist Sheri Gordon says they want to share the wealth.
“We have some surplus from the Bishops’ Storehouse, which is in Chico, and its food that some of it the church grows and processes itself and some they get from other places,” Sheri Gordon told KRCR’s Mike Mangas. “And then, we share it with people that are in need. This is some surplus from the storehouse but we also just finalized a grant with them—with Salvation Army—to bring food in periodically to the area.”
Salvation Army Envoy Darryck Dwelle says this couldn't have come at a better time.
“This is fabulous because our, actually, stocks were completely depleted. And we received a call from the LDS church and they had some over excess of food and it was just perfect timing for us,” Salvation Armey Envoy Darryck Dwelle told KRCR’s Mike Mangas. “And we are just so bless by them to bring us 24 pallets up. And we’re filling our pantry and we’re grateful.”
The church also sent a truck to a Siskiyou County food bank in Weed to help survivors of the Mill and Mountain fires.
