PONTIAC, Mich. -- The Livingston County Community Pantry received a major boost from Casey’s General Stores, which donated remaining products from its recently closed 703 E. Howard Street location here to the organization.
"We did receive many food items from Casey’s," Ruth Schlosser, president of the board of directors of the Pantry, told the Pontiac Daily Leader. "They provided us with a lot of canned goods, ice cream, meat products like bacon, some lettuce, frozen sandwiches, frozen pizza and a lot of snack foods."
The pantry wasn’t the only organization to benefit, as Casey’s provided the bus garage at Pontiac Township High School with remaining automotive supplies, reported the paper.
Jeana Boase, supervisor for nine Livingston County area Casey’s, told the paper the chain will be opening a new, larger location directly behind the existing store, which officially closed last Sunday. Demolition will commence this week with the new store slated for a grand opening on Nov. 6.
