Ruby’s Pantry slated Monday in Sherburn

Ruby’s Pantry will be held Monday, May 20, at the Regional Worship Center, 2 Crossroads Drive in Sherburn. Distribution will begin around 5:30 p.m. and continue until 7 p.m. This will be a drive-through distribution again. Limited pre-pay is available by going to rubyspantry.org and find the express track link. You can pre-pay until noon the day before the distribution. Participants are asked to stay in their vehicles, as volunteers will load bundles of food into trunks. (Please have trunks emptied out so workers can put the items directly in there). Please do not bring any containers. There will be a worker at the beginning of the line to collect the $25. No income or residency requirements. There will be a partial list of distributed items this weekend on their Facebook page at Ruby’s Pantry-RWC-Sherburn. For questions, please call the Regional Worship Center at (507) 764-7491 and ask for Nancy. All are welcome.
