Running out of food at Sussex pantry

The Sussex Food Pantry is in dire need of donations. Executive Director Jennifer Waltz contaced the Sun Wednesday afternoon saying the pantry shelves are bare and that it's completely out of these items: canned meat, rice sides, cans of fruit, and juice.  

"We also need baby formula, diapers and toilet paper," Waltz said.

You can drop of donations from 8:30 a.m. to noon Monday through Friday and also when the pantry is open from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Mondays and 10 a.m. to noon Saturdays (note the pantry will be closed Saturday, July 14 because of the Lions Daze parade).

You can also help this weekend.

The Lannon Lions are hosting a brat fry and donation drive beginning at 8 a.m. Saturday at Piggly Wiggly. They will be at the Pig before and during the Lions Day Parade. They are collecting clothing and food donations that morning. All proceeds and donations will benefit SOS.

For more information, contact Jim Pritzlaff at (262) 353-8737.

During the parade, members of the Sussex Lions Club will walk the route, collecting monetary and food donations. The parade begins at 10 a.m. on Main Street (about a block or two west of Waukesha Avenue), and continues west on Main Street to Sussex Village Park.
