Trick-or-Treat to make a difference

Wednesday, November 13, 2013

Members of the Cassville FBLA, FCCLA and FFA chapters at both Cassville high school and middle school campuses spent Tuesday, Oct. 22 collecting food for those in need this winter.

The annual project, "Trick-or-Treat so Others can Eat," sees students spending two hours collecting non-perishable food items in designated areas of the city. Food items are taken back to the school, students received pizza for dinner.

The Cassville Community Food Pantry received 981 pounds of food for this year's effort. Members and student officers from each club delivered the goods to First United Methodist Church in Cassville.

"We are so greatly appreciative of the students' fine efforts of self-sacrifice to benefit the cause of helping the needy in the community," said Janet Mills, director of the food pantry. "The quantity of food they have collected in quite impressive."

The pantry distributes food on the fourth Tuesday of the month and is always in need of volunteers to help. The next distribution will be on Nov. 26 and Dec. 17.

For more information, call Mills at 847-2328.
