Thoughtful young people help food bank


Thanks to the creative and generous thinking of some young people in Summit Cove, the Family & Intercultural Resource Center (FIRC) food bank received a very welcome and needed contribution of food and diapers. We would like to thank Lizzie and Megan Anderson, their mother Kim Anderson, KevinCarnutte, Bryan Carnutte, Morgan Courtney, Kaitlin Harsch, Jack Jones and Emily Radek for utilizing their profits from a neighborhood lemonade stand to purchase supplies for the food bank. In addition the kids canvassed their neighborhood and collected non-perishables from neighbors who were happy to contribute to their efforts.The spirit of caring and generosity must be contagious in Summit Cove as another young lady there also used her birthday as a way to help our food bank. Hannah Chase had a no gifts 10th birthday party where her friends canvassed the neighborhood for food and cash donations in place of presents for the birthday girl. What neat idea! We used the cash to purchase diapers at Hannahs request.It is a pleasure and a privilege to thank all of these young people for their thoughtfulness and kindness toward those less fortunate in their community. We are very proud of your kindness and hard work . A big Thank you to all of you.Margery NemuraVolunteer coordinator, FIRC Food Bank
