  1. Time of the Year to Give Back

    Nov. 17, 2021

    It is getting to be that time of the year in which our local food pantries have a greater need for assistance.  Our office is looking to help 4-6 local pantries over the next year.  We have chosen to start with Xenia Area FISH Food Pantry because they assist not only Xenia residents but others in Greene County.  If you would like to help a local pantry, check out the list below, or contact one in your town, to see what specific needs their location might have.  A little bit can go a long way.
