Pantry requests fruit, radio broadcast set, stores offer deals

GROVE CITY — Fruits and fruit juices are some of the Grove City Community Food Pantry’s favorite choices, but as winter goes on, the stock dwindles.

That is why the pantry is requesting this delicious and nutritious food for their shelves during February.

Whether it is just one can or an entire case, these donations will put a smile on the faces of all of the clients at the pantry.

 

Some of the items that the food pantry is requesting are:

-- Any shelf-stable canned fruit, such as peaches, pears, mandarin oranges, and pineapple.

-- Shelf-stable 100 percent fruit juice.

-- Shelf-stable fruit products, such as applesauce, apple butter, fruit cocktail, fruit snacks, and fruit roll-ups.

-- Fresh fruit of any kind.

-- Dried fruit, such as raisins, prunes, dates, apricots, apples, and berries.

-- Fruit for special diets, such as water-packed or “no sugar added” fruit products.

Tax-deductible contributions will be gratefully accepted at 114. S. Center St., in person, through the mail, or through the secure online donation feature at www.gccommunityfoodpantry.org

                                                              ¥ ¥ ¥

Also, Ithen Global, next to the N. Broad Street railroad tracks in downtown Grove City, is holding a $1 T-shirt sale and is donating $1 to the food pantry for every T-shirt purchased through the end of February.

In addition, anyone who brings in 10 or more canned goods will receive a free Pittsburgh T-shirt of their choice.

                                                                ¥ ¥ ¥

And during February, all adult clothing at Grove City Community Food Pantry’s Thrifty Threads thrift shop is half price, which means a bag of six or seven items can be bought for only $1.

All proceeds go directly to the pantry, which this month is requesting fruit and fruit-related products.

Tax-deductible donations can also be accepted at 114 S. Center St. or through the secure website: www.gccommunityfoodpantry.org

The food pantry is on Facebook and is supported by Grove City Area United Way, organizations, churches, and individuals throughout the community. Anyone in need of food pantry services or anyone interested in volunteering can call Traci Turner at 724-458-5208.

Sports
On to baseball

Manager Jeff Bell, back left, stands with his championship youth baseball team. Bell, who produced championship football teams at Grove City High before retiring as head coach after last season, is now leading youngsters in another sport - baseball.

  • GC coach Bell retired — sort of!

    You can take the man out of coaching, but you can’t take coaching out of the man.
    Former Grove City High football coach Jeff Bell has spent his first few months of retirement hearing the ping of a baseball ricocheting off an aluminum bat instead of clap of shoulder pads coming together.
    “My grandson Maddox (Bell) and a few of his friends play on a traveling team, so I’m helping out with that,” said Bell, who retired as the Eagles’ football coach this past winter. “They’re a good group of kids to work with and this is a lot more enjoyable. It’s a lot less stress.

  • RANDOM THOUGHTS: Pouncey latest Steeler to make court news

    HERE I THOUGHT, we were going to make it through an offseason without a Pittsburgh Steeler getting in trouble for something stupid.
    Thanks Maurkice Pouncey for allowing that to not happen.
    I just love seeing Steelers players in the police blotter or on the court docket (tongue firmly in cheek).

  • EXTRA INNINGS: Forget trade deadline, focus on signing Martin

    WHILE BASEBALL fans are focused on tomorrow’s 4 p.m. EDT non-waiver trade deadline, there is an issue that is even more pressing for the Pirates: re-signing catcher Russell Martin, eligible for free agency after the 2014 season.
    Andrew McCutcheon is the team’s most valuable player, but Martin is the most valuable TO the Pirates. It is no coincidence that the Pirates’ return to the postseason last year occurred in Martin’s first year with the Bucs.
