Arsenal and Fireworks City team up with the Arnold Food Pantry to help those less fortunate

Partners of Hope

With gas prices hitting an all-time high of $5.00 per gallon in early June and many people already struggling to put food on the table, the Arnold Food Pantry began distributing free $25 gas cards last month to its clients who rely on it for nutritional needs.

Arsenal donated $6,000 for this specific cause and has supported the Arnold Food Pantry the past few years through other donations and food drives at its branches.

Funds donated by Arsenal and Fireworks City made this possible. Arsenal employees distributed gas cards and insulated lunch bags with household items inside on two consecutive Thursdays last month, putting smiles on the faces of many and bringing relief to their wallets. More gas cards will be handed out again to clients in several weeks.
