Thankful for food drive support


To the editor:

It has been an annual tradition for the Fort Loramie Community Service Club to partner with Fort Loramie Schools to organize a food drive for the benefit of the St. Vincent DePaul Food Pantry at St. Michael’s Catholic Church. This year the food drive was held the week of February 1.

First, I would like to thank the students and their family members at both the elementary and junior/senior high school for their continued tremendous generosity and support. The St. Vincent DePaul volunteers expressed their gratefulness of your donations of food, laundry detergent, cleaning supplies and other household items.

I would also like to recognize and thank the Fort Loramie High School Student Council, their advisor Laura Schmitmeyer and elementary school Principal, Scott Rodeheffer for organizing successful food drives at their respective buildings. Finally, I would like to thank the high school students who helped load the donated items into vehicles for transport on another cold February day.

Your generosity, support and caring spirit are what makes the Fort Loramie community a great place to call home!
