Sierra Hope Awarded $1,000 Grant
Sierra Hope has been awarded a $1,000 grant from the Calaveras Community Foundation to support their community food pantry program. The grant is made possible due to a generous donation from the Federlein Family Fund of the San Francisco Community Foundation, in honor of Lloyd Federlein, and is to support food pantries serving Calaveras County. Funds will be used to purchase food that is distributed at the community food pantry in Angels Camp. According to Tori Palmberg, Sierra Hope’s program coordinator, the community food pantry has seen an increase in the number of people using their services, many of them seniors, disabled or homeless. The community food pantry in San Andreas is located at Sierra Hope’s office on Booster Way in Angels Camp, and is open every Wednesday afternoon from 1:00-4:00 PM.
