PROPERTY FOR PARKING PROJECT
HAS BEEN COMPLETED
FOR SCOTT AVENUE PANTRY
The final construction phase of the Northwest Pantry parking lot project has been successfully completed. Many of our pantry guests have told us how much they appreciate our efforts on the new parking lot to make their needed food relief more easily accessible. So many of our guests are burdened with health issues and handicaps that make it difficult for them when they have to park far away and walk great distances with groceries. Over the years we had observed the agitation, and even panic of some, when they are unable to find parking space nearby our pantry, adding to the already stressful time for those in need of food for their families.
With the completion of the new parking lot we have experienced much less vehicle congestion and other related parking issues that were chronically stressful problems (for pantry guests, volunteers, and surrounding businesses) over the previous five plus years. As I have said to many, the new parking lot is contributing more to peace around the Scott Ave pantry than we could have ever imagined when planning the project. Thank you to all who contributed to the successful realization of this project. Hundreds of people are benefiting from it every week now.
