Sebastian Exchange Club makes donations

The Exchange Club of Sebastian on Dec. 13  purchased $1,250 worth of food for the Ecumenical Council Food Pantry at Roseland United Methodist Church and presented a check for $3,000 to benefit Shiloh Youth Ranch programs.

The food donations were accepted by Grace Follett, the Director of the Food Pantry. The Ecumenical Food Pantry prepares food boxes for 100 families at Thanksgiving and Christmas, however they serve hundreds of families each year.

Shiloh Youth Ranch is a boy’s home away from home located on Roseland Road in Sebastian. Shiloh accepts boys ages 9 to 13 from the Space and Treasure coasts. They have been helping families for over 50 years by giving structure and building character in boys who are having struggles with emotional, learning and discipline problems.

The boys are dropped off on Sunday evening and live in a home-like atmosphere through Friday evening. Shiloh exists to assist the family unit. Read more.
