Home Depot donates to Milton Food Pantry

Due to the pandemic, the Milton Community Food Pantry has switched to single-use recyclable paper bags for its food distributions. The pantry had not previously budgeted for this cost. To assist the pantry, Home Depot in Rehoboth Beach has donated three cases of paper bags to be used for packing food.

Lindsey Fry, Rehoboth Beach Home Depot manager, presented the bags to the pantry as part of the retailer’s commitment to help serve the communities in which they operate. Home Depot operates on a set of core values that includes Respect for All People, Doing the Right Thing, and Giving Back. 

The Milton Community Food Pantry team thanks the local Home Depot for this generous donation. Those in need of food assistance can call Delaware 211 or contact the pantry team at 302-278-9557 or
