MANSFIELD, OHIO (Mansfield News Journal) - Catholic Charities' H.O.P.E. Pantry has seen a steady increase in clients reaching out for help to get food, and now is in need of help itself.

"We're letting people in our area know we need help," said Catholic Charities Site Manager/Emergency Services Coordinator Rebecca Owens. "We've never seen so many people hurting."

The pantry increased its hours from 8 to 20 hours a week at the beginning of 2011. For the fiscal year that just ended, the pantry served an average of 250 households a month, compared to 160 a month in the previous fiscal year. From April through June, it received 22,000 pounds of food from the Cleveland Foodbank.

In addition to continued donations of food and money, the food bank also needs volunteers. For details, call 419-524-0733, ext. 222. Financial assistance may be mailed to 2 Smith Ave., Mansfield, OH 44905.

United Way and Catholic Charities also will team up for a city-wide food drive as part of its Annual Day of Caring. Food may be dropped off from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Aug. 3 at the pavilion in South Park.
