The sixth annual Clarke County Veterans’ July Food Drive has just concluded. The veterans from both American Legion Post 41 and VFW Post 9760, and their auxiliaries, along with the good people of Clarke County, have made this year’s effort another success. Over 600 pounds of food has been delivered to the FISH Food Pantry in Berryville, along with cash in the amount of $600.
This joint effort between our veterans and citizens to collect both money and food for the benefit of the less fortunate in Clarke County, is one in which we all can take great pride. We extend special thanks to our friends who provide locations for our collection barrels: Dollar General Store, Duncan Memorial United Methodist Church, VFW Post 9760, and American Legion Post 41.
The two veterans organizations thank the citizens of Clarke County for their effort and the generosity. During the past six years, the Veterans’ Food Drive has contributed over three tons of food and over $2,600 to the FISH Food Pantry.
