Cockrell Mercantile, Deep Woods & Rustic Décor, and Log Cabin Antiques, are offering a 20 percent discount off one full-priced item as a special “thank you” with a donation of a non-perishable food item for the pantry.

Sugar-free jellies are also available at Cockrell, Deep Woods Rustic Decor, and Log Cabin Antiques. Profits from the sales will also benefit the Food Pantry.
