Christian Action Ministries will temporarily close their office and food pantry on Tuesday, Aug. 18, through Friday, Aug. 21, while renovations are made to the food pantry, said director Joan Westfall.

The pantry will be open for people needing to pick up food on Monday, Aug. 17. It will reopen on Monday, Aug. 24. If people have special needs while it is closed, they may call the office at 334-1157.

Thursday, Aug. 20, is the annual Community Caring Day. Members of the Branson Tri-Lakes Kiwanis Club will remove the food and shelves from the pantry, said club president Roger Frieze. Once the area is cleared, volunteers from Home Depot will remove the old carpeting and install a sealed concrete floor, providing a more sanitary and convenient surface, Westfall said.

Christian Action Ministries is located in the old church building of Our Lady of the Lake Catholic Church at 202 B. Vaughn Dr. Regular hours are 9 a.m. to noon and 1:30 to 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 9 a.m. to noon on Friday.
