The Personal Care Pantry was established in 2017.
In 2018 a grant was received from the Parkersburg Area Community Foundation, the funding will allow the Pantry to assist more families and children.
Agencies, such as DHHR, Community Resources and the Senior Center, Family Crisis Intervention Center (to name a few), can make referrals to the FRN for their clients that are in need.
Whether it is setting housekeeping in their first home/apartment, to needing hygiene items to get ready to go on a job interview, or providing items to children put into the foster care system, the Pantry hopes the provided items will help to improve their quality of life.
The Pantry will NOT offer monthly or recurring supplies to the same family. It will be a one time benefit. Must be a Ritchie County resident.
If you would like to donate to the Personal Care Pantry monetarily or otherwise, contact the FRN at 304-643-4187 for additional informational.
Items we are looking for are:

Pretty much anything you can think of that can’t be bought with SNAP/Food Stamp Benefits is what the Pantry is needing.
