Leave a Lasting Impression.  Here's How.
Gini's Pantry Endowment

Gini died in May 2017 and her family looked for how best to continue her impact and legacy. Based on her dedication to providing food for families in need, Gini’s Pantry Endowment was established to help feed the community.

The Community Foundation will award annual grants for this purpose to ACTS in the name of Gini.
