Fill the Van for Sally Ann had a “very good response for its food drive” today, according to one volunteer.
Ralph Webb was among the volunteers outside of Safeway from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. helping to collect food items to fill the Salvation Army’s van for the food bank. Volunteers also had a van outside of Wal-Mart collecting donations.
“It’s been awesome! We’ve got a good load of food and had really good response with our kettles too,” said Webb. “This is kind of a follow-up for the 10,000 Tonight. We’ve been doing this for 25 years and they’ve been doing it, I think for 10. So they go out before we get started and we kind of back it up.”
The Salvation Army kettles for monetary donations will remain outside of the Safeway for those still looking to donate. Food donations can also be made at the food bank, located at 2399 South Main St.
