Letter: Food pantry success due to local generosity

Interchurch Food Pantry of Johnson County

To the editor:

At a time when we hear the call from Washington, D.C., to get Americans across the country engaged in serving their communities, we’ve been impressed with the can-do attitude of people in Johnson County.

We have approximately 200 volunteers over the course of a year who lend their time and talents to the InterChurch Food Pantry of Johnson County — some come daily, weekly or monthly, while others come for special projects. They do a range of work, including greeting clients, computer intake, filling orders, unloading, receiving and stocking product, serving on the board as well as group projects.

We also have organizations that offer to hold food drives across the community. Major food drives over the past several months included Amcor Corp., Ray Skillman Ford and Lambda Chi Alpha at Franklin College.
