Bonbrake set up her pantry after seeing a number of other houses doing it on the facebook group "Huntington Neighbors Helping Neighbors."
"I kept seeing it over and over and it's such a great idea so I thought, 'let's just do it!" says Bonbrake.
Bonbrake works at Parkview Huntington Hospital, and says her days are usually stressful, but knows the importance her job brings, and says she's lucky her and her husband are continuing to collect paychecks when others can't.
"We're both receiving paychecks, so we want to make sure other families can have a little stress taken off their shoulders," she says.
