COMMUNITY

If the strength of a community is judged by the quality and quantity of relationships that bind it together, Remington is robustly healthy. From vibrant churches to active community organizations engaging in service and town improvements, there is a place for anybody who cares about their hometown to plug in.

We ask that you bring along your driver's license to show proof of residency as we serve the Tri-County School District.  Each family is allowed to come 2x/month if they need the assistance.  

 

The pantry is operated by the Remington/Wolcott Ministerial Association.  This consists of Sacred Heart Catholic Church, Apostolic Christian Church, United Methodist Church, First Christian Church, Baptist Church, and Palestine Church in Wolcott.  Each church provides volunteers to work each week.

 

We are able to provide fresh items to our people because of the support of local business and organizations.  Without their support it would not be possible for us to continue our stewardship.
