Food pantry donations still needed

In this last week for the annual Holiday Food Drive, donations of all sizes are needed.

One generous donor dropped off a check for $1,000 at the Bank of Brookhaven Monday, but all donations, no matter how big or how small are appreciated, said bank President Shannon Aker.

“There is a real need this time of year and we are thankful for any size donation,” he said.

The 13th annual Holiday Food Pantry Drive, a joint effort between Bank of Brookhaven and The Daily Leader, helps provide needed funds for churches and organizations that work to feed the hungry in Lincoln County — St. Francis of Assisi/St. Vincent de Paul, Union Hall Baptist Church, St. Paul Missionary Baptist Church, the Greater Hope Foundation and Bethel AME — and your donation makes that possible.

You can give in your name, in your the name of your business or in honor or memory of someone. Donations can also be anonymous.

“One thing that some area churches have done is to make donations as a Sunday School class,” Aker said. “We have had athletic teams also make a donation.”

The food pantry drive will end Dec. 16, but until then donations will be accepted at both The Daily Leader and Bank of Brookhaven. Checks should be made out to Holiday Food Pantry.

Donations can also be mailed to P.O. Box 551, Brookhaven, MS 39602 or given to bank cashiers either inside the lobby or at the drive-through window.

The names of contributors (unless anonymous) will be published in The Daily Leader as they come in.
