The saying, “It takes a village,” is an understatement! The Blessing Box on December 14, 2021, started moving the Cisco Food Pantry to its new location. A special thank you to Brandy Weeks and Ricardo Ojeda for helping carry, stack, and haul all the food from the old location with the help of April Wells, Roger Barritt, Glenn Boles, Staci Wilks, Tammy Douglas, Whitney Mechling, Brian Kelly, Sharon Sellers, Joe York, and Cristen Wilks. Not only did the moving involve food, but commercial size freezers and refrigerators with the help from Brandy Weeks, Ricardo Ojeda, the Cisco Ag. Kids and Mr. Jerry Conring. After moving the food, freezers, and refrigerators, we had some muscle movers come in and move shelving. Thanks to Chris Sanders and Ryan Kennedy. Shelving was taken to be painted and given a new facelift. Thanks to the painters Diego Delgado, William Kennedy and Tony Sanders. A very special thank you to the Cisco Ag. Department and Mr. Jerry Conring for building wooden storage boxes to be used in the store front for The Blessing Box.
