Thanks for sucessful food drive


To the editor:

Annually, the Fort Loramie Community Service Club partners with Fort Loramie Schools to organize a food drive to benefit the St. Vincent DePaul Food Pantry at St. Michael’s Catholic Church. This year’s drive was held the week of Feb. 4.

First, I would like to thank the students (and their parents) at both the elementary and junior/senior high school for their tremendous generosity. The St. Vincent DePaul volunteers expressed their gratefulness of your donations of food, laundry detergent and other household supplies. Secondly, I would like the recognize and thank the Fort Loramie High School Student Council, their advisor Laura Schmitmeyer and elementary principal Scott Rodeheffer for organizing such successful drives at their respective buildings. Finally, I would like to thank all the students and Community Service Club members who helped load the donated items into trucks and vans for transport on such a bitterly cold day.

Your generosity and caring spirit are what make Fort Loramie a great place to call home!
