Pentwater Service Club delivers over 50 bushels of food.

PENTWATER — As part of its 50th celebration, the Pentwater Service Club (PSC) delivered 27 bushel baskets of food and enough cash to buy at least 24 more to the Pentwater Community Food Bank, a ministry of the First Baptist Church of Pentwater.

“What a great way for the PSC to celebrate its 50th Anniversary, by helping those in need with such a grand display of generosity toward the people of Pentwater,” said the Reverend Mark Lillie,” pastor of the First Baptist Church. Lillie said the food bank has steadily seen its client base rise as the number of people in need has increased. “It’s a beautiful thing when an organization like the PSC steps up like this to meet one of our community’s most pressing needs,” Lillie added.

“The PSC celebrated its 50th anniversary last month and, as part of that milestone, decided to help replenish food stocks at the Pentwater Community Food Bank,” said John Faas, PSC treasurer and instigator of the program. Faas said the club plans other 50th anniversary projects, including the Pentwater Community Gardens, the planning for which is already underway. It will be available to Pentwater area residents in time for the upcoming vegetable planting season.
