The next Ruby’s Pantry distribution day in Austin is scheduled for Thursday, May 19th at the Mower County Fairgrounds beginning at 4:00 p.m.
Guests are asked to place boxes or other containers in their vehicle for volunteers to put the items into. Those attending should enter the fairgrounds through the north gate off of 4th Avenue SW, and the distribution will continue until 5:30 p.m., or until the supply of items is exhausted.
Bob Rosel, Media Coordinator for Ruby’s Pantry in Austin stated in a news release that due mainly to the increasing cost of fuel, the donation amount for all Ruby’s Pantry locations has been raised to $25 for each share. There remains a two bundle per vehicle limit, and anyone with questions should call Grace Lutheran Church at 433-3445.
