Recently, the Carlton Dunes neighborhood, located on Amelia Island, united to raise funds to support the Barnabas food pantry during this critical time. Residents of Carlton Dunes, Kathy Bravo and Helen Foxwell, helped to coordinate the effort and presented the donations totaling $17,000 to Wanda Lanier, President & CEO of Barnabas.

With recent business closures and job losses, the services that Barnabas provides to the community are more important than ever. Barnabas thanks the Carlton Dunes neighborhood and other community partners for their support during these uncertain times. Through its food pantry, mobile food distributions, crisis assistance and medical services, Barnabas is working hard to help those in crisis to help them remain healthy and stable.
