Last Saturday, Oct. 20, the Community Pantry found out how much Hemet appreciates the good work they do at a fundraiser pancake breakfast made possible by Applebee’s Restaurant.
The Community Pantry exists to bring needed food to families and other individuals in need.
Board members Jim Lineberger (Executive Director), Liz DuBrille (Vice President), – Michelle Seman (Treasurer), and board members Leonard Gleason, Akeylah Johnson, and Barry Richilin were all present for the breakfast.
The cost was $10 a person with half the proceeds going to Community Pantry.
Lineberger said, “Serving the San Jacinto Valley community since 1965, the Community Pantry will continue to give hope, help families, and bless lives. The funds raised here will go to support our program to provide assistance with utility bills for our senior citizens.”
Community Pantry is located at 191 Columbia St., Hemet, www.ValleyCommunityPantry.org.

Servers at the Community Pantry fundraiser breakfast: (L to R) – Phil Burch (board president), Caitlyn Lawrence (office manager), Gabriel McNeill (warehouse manager), and Russ Brown (Hemet City Councilmember).
