Heavy winds blew a tree onto the Community Investors food pantry on Harmon Street in Church Point. 360 families in the Church Point, Mire and Branch areas are served by the Center. Only 20 bags of food remain and those will be distributed to needy families for the holiday. Everything else is unusable. The center director Nina Dupont says at this point they cannot take in food donations but anyone wishing to make cash donations can do so at any Rayne State Bank location. Just mention that you want to donate to Community Investors their account is set up there.
Just yesterday, The School Service Center of Community Investors was burglarized, theives took everything computers, electronics, and even power strips. The center offers children free help with their school work.
