Shepherd’s Pantry Celebrates Its 25th Anniversary with Shrub Dedications
Twenty five years ago two women from Windham, Sue Kling and Laura Marcille had the idea at the same time to start a Food Pantry in Windham to assist needy families in Southern NH with basic groceries. Sue Kling was a member of St Matthews Church and Laura Marcille was a member the Windham Presbyterian Church. After 25 years of operation the Pantry is helping about 100 families each week providing them with one or two bags of groceries plus meat, bread, eggs, fresh vegetables, fruit and some items for personal care.
As a way of marking this anniversary the Shepherd’s Pantry group of 94 volunteers decided to donate and dedicate a shrub at each of the founder’s churches.
