Saline's community food pantry now has a cooler to store its dairy items.

Mamarow Farms and the Michigan Dairy Farmers donated a dairy cooler to Saline Area Social Service. They also donated $500 to Saline Area Social Service.

"This gift has already been valuable in helping us store many of our dairy foods, especially on hot days like today," said Anne Cummings, Executive Director of Saline Area Social Service.

Saline Area Social Service assists hundreds of low-income residents each week with a food pantry and other assistance.

People who need to use the food pantry, located at 224 W. Michigan Ave., can visit from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Mondays, 10 a.m. to noon on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Thursdays.

You can support their efforts in several ways. Donate money by clicking here.
