J.O.Y. Ministries receives freezer to facilitate Food Program

By Terry Partin

Christmas is a season when we pause in recognition of our Savior's birth, and is also known as a time for giving. Locally, The Appliance Store and Family First Health Care of Columbia have partnered to assist J.O.Y. Ministries in its efforts to serve the people of our Community.

A common problem for Food Pantries in sufficient cold storage. Dr. Partin of Family First Health Care and William Johnson of The Appliance Store recognized that need and the exemplary work being done by J.O.Y. Ministries to contribute to the dietary needs of our Community and partnered to donate a large chest type freezer to facilitate the food program for the Ministry.

J.O.Y. Ministries along with The Adair Food Pantry are partners with Ky Hunter's For The Hungry, a program which pays the processing fees for deer donated by hunters to feed the hungry throughout the Commonwealth. Locally hunters have already donated over 1500 pounds of processed nutritious burger to supplement meals.

Hunters may donate a legally harvested deer to Fairplay Meat Processing, Sano Meat Processing and Showalter's Custom Meats.
