Community Spotlight: Providing Overlooked Essentials for Those in Need
Food banks and pantries are abundant in Northwest Arkansas. Organizations and donors often overlook other essential items. Everyday products- from toilet paper to laundry detergent -are rarities at many resource centers. Essentials Outreachfocuses on providing hygeine products specifically to shelters and food pantries in rural communities.
Board members Mary Ann Spears and Cristie Ginther talk with Pete Hartman about their mission and how the organzation, which serves more than 100 families, began.
A benefit concertto support Essentials Outreach is set for June 24 at George's Majestic Lounge in Fayetteville.
