DAVIS – The Blackwater Ministerial Association Food Pantry has recently received grants from both the Tucker Community Foundation and the Tucker County Giving Circle. The Tucker Community Foundation which manages over 140 different endowed funds awarded the food pantry a grant of $5,000 to help it purchase food for the needy of the area. The Tucker County Giving Circle, issues grants to projects that benefit women or children in Tucker County, awarded the food pantry $1,500 to help it purchase food.
“The grant money is especially important to the Blackwater Ministerial Association Food Pantry right now as it finds itself searching for a permanent location. The food pantry lost it’s home last year and has been moving from temporary location to temporary location every since.” said Michael Moore, Chief Financial Officer for the Tucker Community Foundation.
