WELCOME’s Future

WELCOME will be moving into a new home in 2024 and is raising funds for the purchase, renovation and operation of an expanded food pantry and community resource. The estimated budget is $1,580,000. WELCOME will rely on individual, business, municipal, foundation, and corporate supporters. Every contribution is valued!


The new facility will feature ample cold and dry storage, counseling space, loading
docks, parking, and a guest pick that will address the vulnerability to Alabama weather.


WELCOME needs you now! If you or someone you know would like to support the Welcome Home Building Campaign, please use the links below to donate or contact us to learn more.

New WELCOME Facility Sample Floor Plan

Why Does WELCOME Need a New Home?

The current facility is old, unsafe, and insufficient to serve the increasing number of families it serves. Urgent plans for an expanded pantry are underway! 

 

The Welcome Home Building Campaign is raising funds for a new pantry that will offer social services and food assistance while also assisting the community during emergencies and severe weather.


When you make a pledge or donate to the Welcome Home Building Campaign, you are changing the lives of Alabamans who often face impossible choices, such as food or rent. Nutritious food delivered with kindness at the new pantry will be a welcome sight indeed!

WELCOME’s Story

WELCOME is a vital resource for food-insecure families in West Elmore County, Alabama providing food pantry assistance for approximately half of the county. 

WELCOME collaborates with churches, community organizations, Heart of Alabama Food Bank, Midwest Food Bank to feed more than 325 families each month through weekly service and nearly 350 families during our monthly fresh produce pick-up.

 

WELCOME currently operates from an inadequate 1940s building, unfit to meet the organization's growing needs. The lack of storage, parking, and covered service space hampers the mission to assist food-insecure families. Our neighbors often endure long lines in a muddy field, making the experience even more difficult for seniors and those with physical challenges.


Join WELCOME in helping our neighbors who battle the effects of poverty, hunger, and emergencies, WELCOME must expand its reach with a suitable facility.
