(KAKE) - The Chautauqua County Alliance is a group of eleven churches in the area that help their community in a variety of ways. But right now, they are meeting the needs of people who might not be able to afford groceries, with their food pantry.

“So, we as a group, as a community, have kind of stepped up to try and help them to make sure that they’re not hungry,” said president Pastor Mark Davis.

Especially as the pandemic has changed the lives of many, they know there is a need in their county for food. But they also know a lot of people don’t feel comfortable asking for help.

“Many of our churches are trying to search out those that we know are in need but they won’t come and ask, and try to delicately support them and help them,” said Pastor Davis.

If you’re in the area and can help out, you can stop by Floyd’s market, pick out groceries, then tell the cashier what it’s for. They’ll give a discount and make sure it gets to the right place.

“He’s been really a blessing and a huge help to our food pantry,” said Pastor Davis of Floyd’s Market.

And those blessings are exactly what Pastor Mark Davis says are so necessary right now.

“We need to help each other to survive this world.”

To help with their mission, KAKE TV and DeVaughn James Injury Lawyers are honored to have them as this week’s, “Wins for Kansas.”

“On behalf of DeVaughn James Injury Lawyers, we’re honored to recognize the Chautauqua County Ministerial Alliance. Thank you for the great work you’re doing in your community,” said Richard James of DeVaughn James Injury Lawyers.

“I want to thank DeVaughn James and KAKE TV for the $500 grant. It’ll be used to restock the shelves that are behind me. It’s certainly appreciated and you don’t know how much of a blessing you are to others in our community,” said Pastor Davis.
