Our first Alpine Music Festival was really great, and we had some truly fantastic music! A great time was had by all, and everyone is encouraging us to continue the tradition next year. We look forward to announcing our next one sometime in the next month or so. Thank you for your support!
THE PANTRY WILL BE SHUT DOWN DUE TO TRAFFIC
Unless you help us.
Since our parking lot issues began, our neighbors have worked with us to make continuing distributions possible. However, the traffic backlog caused by individuals arriving before distribution and swarming the pantry at 3:30pm has created a traffic problem for our neighbors who have generously helped keep us open. We are harming their businesses and impeding their family lives with our chaotic traffic.
How can you help?
NEVER arrive before 3:30 pm
Last Name A-H, arrive between 3:30 and 4:30 pm (this time slot is the biggest problem group, and the one we are having the most issues with)
***** PLEASE STAGGER YOUR ARRIVALS! DO NOT ALL ARRIVE AT 3:30PM! *****
Last name I-Q, arrive between 4:30 pm through 5:30 pm
Last Name R-Z, arrive between 5:00 and 6:30pm
If you are early, park by the park/playground across Highway 24
Unless you have prior permission to arrive outside of your time slot, you
will be asked to leave until your designated time slot.
Help us get our traffic situation under control.
Or else, the food pantry will be shut down completely, as in, no distribution, no emergency food, and no food deliveries.
The Actions of 50 individuals will cause almost 500 to go hungry.
PLEASE HELP US SERVE YOU.
We have never run out of food on a distribution day.
Boxes are pre-packed so boxes distributed at 3:30 pm are nearly
identical to boxes distributed at 6pm.
Through consistent effort and sheer determination, the Alpine Music Festival Committee is keeping Festival planing and progress right on track.
Keep up the Good Work Team!
