Funding resources that support these pantries include donations from local service groups, churches and private citizens; Area United Ways & United Way Funds; Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA); and the Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP). CWCAC Agency fundraisers include a summer golf outing and the winter Canadian Pacific Railroad Holiday Train.
