The Kewaunee County Food Pantry is helping to play Santa Claus next week with the collaboration of three New Franken parishes. Ken Marquardt, executive director of the pantry, says the special program impacts 27 families in the area. He explains how the Giving Tree is coordinated.
Marquardt says families submit a “wish list” of items that the children would like and appreciate. The families have been notified and will receive the Giving Tree packages next Monday and Wednesday at the Kewaunee County Food Pantry during the regular hours of operations. The packages are bagged up and labeled to be easily claimed by the family in need. St. Kilian, Grace Bible Church, and St. Thomas the Apostle were the participating churches in this year's Giving Tree.
