In May, ACTS was notified by United Way of a $10,000 grant award for the expansion and enhancement of services through the ACTS Food Pantry. As a result, additional Tuesday evening hours (5-7 p.m.) at the pantry began on Tuesday, August 6. Many who come on Tuesdays are employed adults, who cannot attend on Wednesdays and find Saturdays difficult. Also several senior citizens have chosen Tuesday as their preferred time. Overall, the number of families served in 2019 has increased, in part due to the increase in hours of operation.
