ROGERS, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) — We like to highlight those doing right by our community.
A Rogers gift shop donated $1,000 to Mercy’s Little Free Pantry today.
While The Dotted Pig was closed to the public for six weeks, a percentage of online purchases was set aside to help curb food insecurity in northwest arkansas.
“For those of us that still have jobs, for those of us that don’t have to worry job security, there are a lot of people out there that don’t have that,” Sherry Puttkammer, owner of the Dotted Pig. “And if they were already in trouble then they’re really in trouble now when we go buy and drop a few little items in here and there, it’s bare a lot. So that tells you that someone’s coming by there and they have a need.”
Janelle Potts with Mercy tells us they are grateful for the donation and ready to help put an end to food insecurity in Northwest Arkansas.
