The Community Project’s Essentials Pantry offering non-food items for those in need

By Sarah Greil

TOMAHAWK –   The Community Project (TCP), founded by Jennifer Van Rixel and Julie Thompson in August of 2022, has been helping underprivileged and struggling members in our community and helping others realize their dreams of owning their own business.

After months of planning and collecting donated items, they have finally added the service of an Essentials Pantry. The Essentials Pantry provides non-food items for families who can’t afford them at this time.

They are not currently taking walk-ins. Assistance is only provided via referral from other local nonprofits, such as churches and the Salvation Army. An appointment must be set up with TCP prior to a visit to the pantry.

TCP works closely with the Tomahawk School District nurse and counselors, as well as Kinship and others to identify families who may need help.

The Essentials Pantry is looking for donations of household goods, such as dish soap, laundry detergent, toilet paper, cleaning supplies and dish towels. They are also accepting personal hygiene items, such as shampoo, body wash, bath towels, feminine products, diapers and formula.

Those wishing to donate to the Essentials Pantry can drop off items at The Community Project at 310 W. Wisconsin Ave. Those making donations are asked to call 715-224-3412 ahead to set up a drop-off time.
