On September 24th, 2018 the 25th Annual Charity Classic Golf Tournament was hosted by Merchants Bank at Terri Pines. Today October 30, 2018 we were honored by Merchants Bank by being one of the local charities to receive a donation from the tournament. We would like to thank Steve Glasscock and his employees for making this possible. We especially want to thank all of the golfers who participated in this tournament.
David Wiggins at East Elementary School is teaching his students how to give back to the community after the shelves in the food bank had reached an extremely low point. The children collected 1,090 pounds of food and over $800 in monetary donations. This will help our food bank feed around 200 families. Currently here at the United Way Food Bank we have started serving over 600 families a month, where last year at this time we were serving a little over 500 families. We can't thank Mr. Wiggins and especially his students for what they are doing in our community.
