DE PERE, WI -- It was a sight of neighbors helping neighbors today at one local food pantry. People from all different beliefs came together for this one cause.
St. Anne's church in De Pere filled with people today but not for a church service. They were there for a celebration of the new food pantry. This facility isn't just for St. Anne's, it has been an 18-month long project made possible through the help of numerous churches in De Pere.
Canned goods, bags and boxes of food lines the shelves after the opening of the pantry and church members say all the hard work pays off when they get to help someone out.
The food pantry was built mostly through volunteer work and donations. This pantry is open to the community of De Pere and has food for anyone in need.
