Pops Pantry Comes To The Greenville, South Carolina Area

The ladies who work at Powdersville Self Storage had an idea. What if they could help people who don't have the tools and skills needed to find work, provide for themselves. Their idea is an organization called Pop's Pantry.

It works this way: Those in need can stop by and receive food for their pantry. They can come in twice a month and get stocked up.

The first time they come by, the ladies talk to them and get their contact information.

The second time they come in, they bring a job description they can get from an ad, Craigslist, The Job Connection or other source and they'll help them put together a resume'.

On the third visit, they come in dressed for the interview and the ladies at Pop's Pantry will help them practice interviewing.

On the fourth visit, they come in with a signed form showing that they've interviewed for a job. If they do this they will continue to receive help.

Pop's Pantry is modeled after a similar kind of organization in another city. They call theirs "Pop's Pantry" to honor Fred Reinhardt. He worked to provide for his family both spiritually and financially. His family loved him and called him "Pop"!

Pop's wife wants to continue his legacy and make sure that people continue to get help when they are ready to receive it.

Please pray for this Upstate South Carolina mission as they work to help people help themselves.

Backpack Ministry

Will you please join us by helping with supplies to pack 7000+ meals for needy children? These kids attend Alexander Elementary in Greenville County. The meals are for them to eat on weekends during the current school year. Over 90% of the children attending this school are below the poverty level.

We will be packing bags with multiple meals for each weekend from September through May for 175 children.

Since these children won’t have the resources to cook, we are asking for packages that are easy-to-open and eat. Pop-top cans are ideal.

If you’re pressed for time, you can make a cash donation instead and let volunteers make the purchases on your behalf, you can make a tax-deductible contribution to Powdersville First Baptist Church and mark that it is for The Backpack ministry.

Here is a list of foods we are able to use.

  • Milk - Hershey, Lil Milk 8 oz. aseptic packing - usually packed 3/pkg.

  • Juice - 6.75 oz. juice boxes - e.g. Minute Maid, Tropicana, pouches w/straw attached (Capri Sun)

  • Fruits - 4 oz. cups - applesauce, diced peaches, oranges, and fruit in gel cups

  • Meat Items - Hormel & Bumble Bee 4 oz. salad kits (ham, tuna, chicken), Peanut Butter w/crackers, Vienna sausages, Van Camp Beanee Weenie 7 oz. - anything that does not have to be cooked or microwaved & has an easy-open top

  • Sweets -cookies individually wrapped, 4 oz. pudding cups (Snack Pack)

  • Breakfast - cereal (single serve boxes of any brand), grits/oatmeal (single serve pkgs)

  • Snacks - individual size peanuts, raisins, sandwich crackers, pretzels, Teddy Grahams, granola/nutrition bars, Pop Tarts, gummie snacks, Goldfish

  • Mac and cheese, (Easy Mac), Ramen Noodles, pop-top soups/raviolis, canned green beans

Thank you so much for your help!
