Rocketeer Charity: Minnie's Food Pantry

For our latest charity drawing, Rocketeers are supporting Minnie’s Food Pantry – a local non-profit that provides nutritional assistance to children and families in need.

Rocketeer Stefani Duke was inspired to enter Minnie’s Food Pantry into the drawing last October.

“I was watching The Food Network in October, and they were showing No Kid Hungry. They were talking about how many kids go without hot meals each day, and how simple it can be for them to be provided a hot meal. One of the organizations they showed was Minnie’s Food Pantry. The lady was speaking about how many families she feeds each year getting ready for the holidays. Since it’s a local organization, I decided to help close to home,” Duke said.

Minnie’s Food Pantry was founded by Cheryl Jackson in honor of her mother Minnie Ewing and is completely community funded.
