Friends of Dearborn County Clearinghouse -
The Clearinghouse Food Pantry is a growing center for services to those in need in our community.
In 2018 2415 individuals in 978 households receive food monthly at our George Street location in Aurora and Zion Church in Lawrenceburg and clothing from Beecher Presbyterian Church.
"Sacks of Snacks" are distributed every week to over 400 children who are part of the free breakfast and lunch programs at nine schools throughout Dearborn County to tide them over for the weekend.
NEW since November: Two new mobile pantry trucks,"Right-2-U", deliver boxes of groceries to elderly and families in low income housing with limited transportation. In the first two months alone more than 500 people received food.
Coalition for Children's Christmas Toys brightened the holiday for 375 children and shared extras with St. Vincent de Paul, Dearborn Children's Services (Foster care serving 180 kids), and two other food pantries.
277 dinners were distributed at Thanksgiving and more than 300 at Christmas.
