There was a steady flow of people seeking assistance at the Putnam County Emergency Food Pantry as PCF Assistant Superintendent Tim Phegley presented checks for $750 each to Food Pantry Director Judy Miller for the Putnam County Emergency Food Pantry and to Director Ruth Haas for the Clay County Emergency Food Pantry.
"Thank you," Phegley told the directors. "Your dedication and service to the community inspire all of us to help others. I hope that this donation will put food on the table of many families in the community."
"Thanksgiving is an action word," PCF Superintendent Stan Knight told staff.
And, in keeping with that sentiment, he authorized a donation of $500 to the American Red Cross for victims of Hurricane Sandy.
Money for the donations was generated by the sale of PCF staff meals with the assistance of Aramark Foodservice.
