A group stands in front of the bread aisle at Winco in Pocatello with shopping carts full of food for Benny's Giving Tree donations

Thank you to all who supported Benny’s Giving Tree. A total of 28 children received gifts through the program this year.
Benny’s Pantry also had an incredible December, receiving almost 3,500 pounds in donations. A few of these donations totaled over 100 pounds each, and the pantry staff would like to recognize this generosity.

  • College of Technology LPN1, 222 lbs.
  • Idaho Central Credit Union, 176 lbs.
  • Lori Amlinm, 121 lbs.
  • LDS YSA Stake, 218 lbs.
  • Department of Environmental Quality, 447 lbs.
  • Medieval Club, 101.5 lbs.
  • ISU Alumni Center, 178 lbs.

The Pantry staff also gives a shout-out to the Idaho Food Bank—a consistent contributor—and a special thanks to the Johnson Family of Pocatello (see photo), whose members gather annually to shop for Benny’s Pantry donations. This year, together, they provided 332 pounds of donations. Thank you, everyone, for supporting food security and Benny’s Pantry!
