Saturday wrapped up the annual 10-day food drive for the Edmonson County Senior Food Pantry. All items collected are used throughout the year. All monetary donations that are received are used to purchase any food items needed that weren’t donated along with Ensure, a high protein drink, and the adult briefs that the pantry provides.
“Vickie and all the volunteers do an excellent job coordinating and donating their time, said Cee Bee Food Store owner Jeff Rich, who was present at the drive. "Edmonson County always takes of their own and that goes a long way in small community."
Drop off locations were placed at both Cee Bee Food Store and the Brownsville Save A Lot.
“Thank you to everyone who donated, and all our volunteers who put in many hours to contribute to our food drive. We also want to thank Cee Bee Food Store and Save A lot for allowing us to set up collection bins” said pantry coordinator Vickie Walker.
