Jonesboro State Bank (JSB) has awarded a “Pledge 10” grant of $9,000.00 to Ringgold United Christian Ministries (RUCM) in order to expand our services to the Ringgold area recipients. The grants are offered yearly to the organizations that promote youth development and community enrichment as well as other projects. The grants benefit communities withing the JSB service area.
The grant has allowed us to greatly expand our food distribution of our food pantry. We are affiliated with the Northwest Louisiana Food Bank of Shreveport and have been serving the community since 2015. We currently have between 120 and 150 families we assist with monthly food distribution. The grant has funded the purchase of large refrigerator and freezer units that now allow us to offer fresh and frozen food that we could not offer until now. We already distribute a minimum of 40 pounds of food per family unit. The food has been mostly non-perishable items in the past.
We greatly appreciate and welcome the ability to offer even better-quality food to our recipients. Thanks to the generosity of resources afforded by this grant from the Jonesboro State Bank
