I think the Methodist church has a food pantry but, I think it is only open a couple of days a week in the mornings. Don't know what days or hours.

They are open Tue and Thur 10-12, they also help with bills if qualified. CRDC will also help if they have funds.

I am aware of a family who's income recently fell hard, the husband is disabled permanently and has been in and out of the hospital. He does get SSD but they are in need of help with their entergy bill this month.

So if you can pass on the information it would be helpful to someone else.

Thanks.

the American Red Cross and CRDC can help people that draw social security disability or SSI or that are over 60 with an Entergy bill when funds are available. Help is available only once per year. to see if there is money available call the Red Cross chapter in Jonesboro.
