The Lakeview Pantry-West location at 1414 W. Oakdale Ave. will be closing at the end of the month. Thursday, January 31 will be its last day of operation in serving food, clothing, and related items to the clients that rely on this site for assistance. Many of us who have volunteered at this site, over the years, have observed that it is fairly limited in being a welcoming location to the clients of the Lakeview Pantry-West. At the new location Holy Trinity volunteers will now serve on the fourth Tuesday of the month, starting in February. This will allow us who have served with Carrie McCormack for many years to serve with her at the Lakeview Pantry location at 3945 N. Sheridan Road. The time of volunteering remains the same - from 5:30 to 8:30pm.

Open House at Lakeview Pantry Sheridan Rd. Location Jan. 16

There will be an open house for all volunteers who have served at the Lakeview Pantry-West site, at the Lakeview Pantry's location at 3945 N. Sheridan Road, on Wednesday, January 16, from 5:00 until 7:30pm. This will be an opportunity for us to see the facility, meet other staff members of the Lakeview Pantry, and to learn how this site does food distribution and such. A sign-up for the open house has been created to assist James and Ken in knowing who is interested and/or able to attend the open house. We plan to be there much of the evening to help connect the Holy Trinity community with the Lakeview Pantry's main location.

If you have any questions related to the Lakeview Pantry-West's closing, please feel free to talk with Ken Duckmann ( He'll be happy to speak with you about the changes.
