Friday FreeHelpCK opened its newest pantry recently, this time in BME Freedom Park in Chatham
The organization opened the pantry with the support of folks from East Side Pride and the Chatham-Kent Black Historical Society & Black Mecca Museum on hand.
Included in the group was Dorothy Wright Wallace of the historical society, who was a member of the church that once stood on the site of the park.
East Side Pride co-founder and municipal councillor Marjorie Crew was also on hand.
FreeHelpCK takes care of several pantries around Chatham, and one in Dresden as well. They are restocked on Tuesdays and Fridays.
Geri Hugson is the founder of FreeHelpCk a Christian based charity. She brought her vision of helping the less fortunate to life over the last four years.
It has slowly grown into a number of community outreach programs.
