Hello Neighbors,

Many of you may know that the Mason Ministerial Alliance Food Bank has moved. The food bank is a nonprofit organization that is supported by the local churches and their members. Each month our churches are responsible for the preparation and distribution of food to over 200 individuals living in our community.Thanks to the generosity of Monica and Brent Hinckley, we have had the use of a small building just off the square. We appreciate the use of the building but, we really need a larger building with better entries and exits in order to allow receipt of our food as well as facilitate flow as our customers arrive on-foot and by car.Simply put, we are asking anyone who might have commercially zoned properties or a larger building (i.e. steel storage building, shop, etc) that is not in use now or in the future to donate it to the Ministerial Alliance for the food banks use. Even a small plot of land would help us greatly. We could build the building according to our needs. This is a very big request, but I know that there are so many people here in Mason that donate and give so much. If I was anywhere else, most people would think I was crazy to ask but, in Mason, you just have to let the people know that there is a need and someone steps up. I’m praying that this is the case. Thank you.“Then these righteous ones will reply, ‘Lord, when did we ever see you hungry and feed you? Or thirsty and give you something to drink? Or a stranger and show you hospitality? Or naked and give you clothing? When did we ever see you sick or in prison and visit you?’“And Jesus will say, ‘I tell you the truth, when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me!’(Matthew 25:37 - 40 )
