Our monthly donation focus for month of November will be baking supplies. The following is a testimonial from an individual helped by the Antigo Community Food Pantry this year: “I am the father of 4 children. I have a job and try to get overtime, but my wife needed to stop working to help one of our children who has a significant health condition. We have insurance that covers some of the medical bills and medication, but it does not cover everything. It is difficult to pay rent, gas, electrical, and other household bills on just my salary.”
