Charity of the Month – Bayville Village Church Food Pantry
The Mimi Mernis Food Pantry (aka the Bayville Village Church food pantry) was started as a small outreach service almost 20 years ago and operated out of a small shed at the rear of the church. Until recently, they solely relied on private donations. With the onset of the coronavirus, the Food Pantry expanded their services and moved to a conference room in the Village Church. They are currently open Saturdays, from 9am -12pm for drive up/no contact distribution. Presently, they are serving about 50 families/200 individuals per distribution date, offering dry goods, produce, meats, dairy items and more.
We can all agree 2020 threw us a few curveballs – which is why it’s even more AMAZING that our customers have truly stepped up to help those in need. Through our Charity of the Month program, we were able to raise over $10,000 for a number of different local organizations. Community engagement has always been a huge part of this store – it’s important that we recognize the tremendous individuals that make these nonprofits tick, and really see how their work is impacting the neediest in our community. Thank you to those individuals and again thank you to our AWESOME customers. Let’s make 2021 even greater! ⠀

American Heart Month
February is American Heart Month, bringing attention to how we can motivate ourselves and each other to adopt healthy lifestyles that may help prevent heart disease. This year, heart health is extremely important, as people with poor cardiovascular health may also be at increased risk of illness from COVID-19.
Heart disease is the number one cause of deaths for most groups, affecting all ages, genders, and ethnicities. Luckily, there are some simple behavior changes that may prevent heart disease, including not smoking, maintaining a healthy weight, controlling blood sugar and cholesterol, managing high blood pressure, increasing physical activity and getting regular checkups.
Get those red clothes ready! February 5th is National Wear Red Day, when people across the country are encouraged to wear red to raise awareness about cardiovascular disease.
