Food Pantry Now in Our Area
Golden Leaf Scholar Leadership Program (GLSLP)

A Little Food Pantry has been located outside our town library shortly. Many thanks to Ja"kasia Ferebee who recently contacted our community about a project her group is working on. This is her group's community action project for the Golden Leaf Scholar Leadership Program (GLSLP). One of the group members will install the box in the next two weeks. Many of these pantries are located in Washington and now we will have one in Aurora.

With the rising costs of food and gas, this food pantry may be instrumental in helping families fill in the gap.  People are looking for ways to help during this challenging time and placing a few additional cans of food in their shopping cart and stocking a pantry is an easy way to positively impact the life of another person in the community. With the help of the community, we hope this pantry may serve those in need. 

It's in need of some shelf stable foods to get it started and then if you need some food you get some and if you have some you leave it.

Adult Kitty Needs Rehoming
A year old female black and white kitty needs to be rehomed. She is spayed and up to date on shots. She is an inside kitty only. She loves cuddles once she warms up to you. If you are interested in this pretty girl or have more questions. please reach out to Anna McCollum, 252-474-5591.

Many thanks to the community who sent items in for the yard sale sponsored by Paws and Love. We had a great turnout!  It was all for the kitties!!! This will allow us to continue Trapping. neutering and releasing community cats!
