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

When Gini died in May 2017, her family looked for the best way 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.
