Holy Trinity St. Vincent de Paul in Bloomington is repurposing the Parish Junior High Building into a food and clothing pantry.
Over the past few years the volunteer group, who delivers food and clothing to those in need, have outgrown and need a bigger space says Dorthy Deany.
In the past six years, the patrons that attend the pantry have increased threefold serving around 1200 families each month. The clients are seniors, low wage earners, the disabled and the under or unemployed.
The other reason for growing is that they feel that don't quite serve the people enough because of the space they have right now, said Jim Tuite.
The Holy Trinity Saint Vincent de Paul is the largest food pantry in McLean County and the pantry in the Diocese of Peoria. You can call St. Vincent de Paul if you have any questions at 309-829-9611.
