Marshall County Program Offers HOPE and More

Oftentimes, people fall on hard times, and they need a small hand-up. An organization in Marshall County has programs to extend a helping hand to residents in need.

The Executive Director of HOPE for the Marshall County Food Pantry, Gwen Wilson, said the idea came to life over two years ago. “We started the food pantry a little over two years ago as we saw a rising need for it in our community.

At the same time we also placed numerous Blessing Boxes for those who needed help with food after hours.”

HFMC covers the whole of Marshall County and is open Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Residents need to bring a utility bill to prove residence in Marshall County.

Armed Robbery at Love’s

On Saturday, March 23, a 14 year old was arrested in conjunction with an armed robbery held at Love’s Country Store in Madill.

According to the Madill Police Department, the white, juvenile male entered Love’s around 5 p.m. with a bandana-style mask covering the lower portion of his face and was wearing a black hoodie.

Madill Police Department Community Relations Coordinator, Donny Raley, said, “The suspect brandished a handgun and pointed it at the clerk and demanded the clerk give him money out of the cash drawer.” According to the police, the clerk handed the suspect cash, per Love’s policy. Once the suspect had the cash in hand, he ran north down the alley by Love’s.

The clerk followed the suspect after calling the police and let the responding officers know where the suspect was headed.

The Helping Hand

A food pantry is a small, frontline agency that hands out food to those in need. The food that is distributed mainly comes from food banks. Food is also garnered by donations from individuals or businesses.

The Bread of Life is a food pantry in Madill with a goal for helping families in need. Sue Cherry, and Ray and Phyllis Morse are the organizers and ministry leaders of the Bread of Life Ministries. The organization is currently in its 13th year of activity. They celebrated their anniversary on Jan. 19.

Phyllis Morse said the Bread of Life has two active ministries that help families with food. “We provide a meal on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Our doors are open from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.”

There are no limitations or requirements for dining there, Morse said. “We just ask for everyone to sign in so we can compile reports.”
