An Elkhart nonprofit group is searching for a new home.

Santa’s Pantry currently uses a building at 1024 Nappanee St., but the building is going up for sale, said president Debbie Micola.

Use of the space was donated to the nonprofit in January 2013 by the Linton family, which owns Linton’s Enchanted Gardens on C.R. 17.

The Lintons told Micola on Tuesday, June 25, that they intend to put the building up for sale.

"It could be (sold) next week or next month,“ Micola said. ”We started packing yesterday.“

All donations the organization receives go back to the community, so Santa’s Pantry does not have the funds to rent a space.

The new space does not have to have utility connections because it will be used mostly for storage, but should be at least 30-feet by 30-feet, Micola said.

"We’d prefer it be somewhere that’s well-lit because we’re in and out of there at all hours when we have events and it’s female volunteers much of the time,“ she said.

Anyone interested in donating space can contact Santa’s Pantry on Facebook or at (574) 361-3338.
