Robinson Food Pantry continues to serve the Robinson area thanks to the generosity of family and friends of Harold Harrison. Harold passed away in December of 2016, but he continues to be a blessing to the people of Robinson who need help. His wife of 66 years, Doris, recently presented a check to continue her husband’s benevolence and legacy.
In the early 1980’s, Mr. Harrison was given the ministry of the Benevolence Committee of Otterbein Church. He recognized the need for a food pantry in Robinson, as well as monies needed for utilities, gas, and rent. He set in motion, through contact with Illinois state and local leaders, the foundation of what we now know to be the Robinson Food Pantry. He began keeping non-perishable food items in the church basement and would distribute as needed. He, also, through the generosity of Robinson Otterbein Church congregation, helped those in need of financial assistance not available elsewhere.
We are happy to say, thanks to generous donations continuing today, the Robinson Food Pantry still meets the nutritional needs of this area. The Pantry is open each Monday and Thursday from 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM each week, with exclusion of any 5th Monday or Thursday.

Pastor Bessie’s Going-Away Potluck Lunch

Sunday May 12 we celebrated 5 1/2 years of Pastor Bessie’s tenure at Otterbein.  It has been a wonderful time and we love Bessie deeply and pray for her in her new assignment in Evansville, IN.  We had a great lunch and shared stories and reminiscences and presented Bessie with keepsakes from the Otterbein family. It was an emotional time and some tears were shed. We will miss her greatly and pray for her comfort and success in her new church home!

2015 Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Packing

The Otterbein Family had a great time November 8 packing shoeboxes for Operations Christmas Child.  (After a delicious Thanksgiving potluck lunch.)  We packed 53 boxes at the church and several people took boxes home to pack and bring back, so our total will probably be 60+ boxes.  So much fun and fellowship as we help children around the world have a happier Christmas!

Heath Harvest Festival

We had a fantastic day at the 2015 Heath Harvest Festival. The Otterbein Booth gave away 300 stuffed animals with an Otterbein message attached, to children who played our bean bag toss game. Hard to tell who had a better time, the kids or those of us who manned the booth!
