Feeding the Hungry

This past weekend, Interfaith Food Ministry parked a truck in front of B&C True Value in hopes of collecting food and funds.  B&C generously donated a Weber Kettle Barbeque valued at approximately $100.  In exchange for  a bag of groceries or a cash donation,  community members received a coupon to be put a a drawing.   Monday, Tom Fitzsimmons announced the winner, Sally Sumner.   Later Phil LaMarche, who organized the event, called to say they received approximately 700 pounds of groceries valued at about $3,500.00.  Not bad for a couple of days work.  Thank you to all who realize hunger is not a holiday event.
