Needy are grateful for food donations
Mother’s Day has come and gone, along with the memories of mom telling us, when we were growing up, to eat.
Sadly, in these hard economic times, that is not possible for everyone.
But on May 11, many of you made a big difference in this area for people in need by leaving nonperishable food donations at your mailbox for letter carriers to collect and give to area food banks.
Two schools, Conemaugh Valley and Our Mother of Sorrows, got the food drive going by their participation. And then numerous volunteers followed by sorting and boxing the donations for the food pantries.
Mom will be proud of everyone involved, and those in need are very grateful.
