The Loss of a Friend

On November 25, 2017, not only a volunteer of Matthew 25 but a friend as well, took his last journey. His journey to heaven. Billy Harte was with Matthew 25 since we got our new place from the county. He helped us fix up the new building and maintained the premises with my husband. Billy always greeted everyone with a smile at Matthew 25. Everyone who knew Billy knew that he would do anything for anyone. He would give you the shirt off his back! I know you are with the Lord now Billy, I se... Read Full Post »

Yes... we must all go through it... the deadly "Inspection" day!  You try to prepare but you can't because you really don't know what to expect.  All you can do is hope and pray that YOU pass it!  ALL the volunteers got busy and cleaned and organized.  Nothing on the floor... thermometers are all in... paperwork is in order  and monthly numbers are all in.  Now we wait and see!  Well, the inspector came and it was a GREAT day!...

What happened to our page???

What did happen to our page?  Well, I guess I got kind of busy and neglected to update it.  Thank goodness, that some of our clients visit the page because they are the ones who told me that the Matthew 25 Food Pantry webpage was not up.  I went to see what is wrong... you won't believe it!  Someone took the Matthew 25 domain name (I got hijacked!) and I had to change the domain name to  They would have given me the domain nam...

WHAT? Another Move???

Posted by jesus7 on October 9, 2011 at 4:55 PM Comments comments (0)

YES! Matthew 25 Food Pantry will be moving again. Since our Grand Opening, the County Legislatures decided to help us out. They will be donating one of the buildings for us to rent. The rent is so cheap! Everyone wants to pay it for the first five years! LOL

Anyway, your friends at Matthew 25 are very excited about this move. Hopefully, this will be our last! The place really needs alot of work and I do mean ALOT! We will be looking for volunteers that can help us fix this place...
