Arnold, MO – Laborers’ Local 110 has once again stepped up to the plate to help members of the community by donating $2,500 to the Arnold Food Pantry.
Phil Amato, president of the food pantry’s board of directors, said he was grateful for the union’s ongoing support.
“The Laborers’ Union has been a friend and supporter to the pantry for years, with donations, canned good drives and volunteer help,” Amato said. “We appreciate their partnership in helping families in the community facing hunger and food insecurity.”
The food pantry moved to its new location at 2024 Key West Dr. in Arnold in 2012. Local labor unions, including Local 110 and their contractors helped renovate the building to the tune of $280,000 in cash, labor and materials.
Since then, Local 110 has provided ongoing support, including $20,000 in cash donations and coordinating all of pantry’s asphalt paving work.
The Arnold Food Pantry is the largest non-denominational food distribution center in the St. Louis region that does not receive city, state or federal government funding. The pantry, which feeds about 320 families a week, serves residents in Arnold and portions of Imperial and Fenton.
“We are blessed to have such great friends in Labor dedicated to eliminating hunger in our area,” Amato said. “We will have this information prominently displayed on our website.”
