Justice Bus

The Justice Bus is coming to Pine River on Tuesday, January 17th, 2023. This will provide free legal help to those aged 60 or more. We hope to have the bus return every other month during Food Shelf hours to save a trip for those who need both.

Volunteers Needed

The Pine River Area Food Shelf is looking for able-bodied volunteers to help with food distribution twice weekly. Volunteers alternate so no one works every food shelf day. If you or someone you know is interested, please give us a call!
