In the spirit of giving

Wednesday, November 24, 2010
Paige Tesmer's eighth grade community projects class and Greencastle Middle School has spent this nine weeks collecting 133 non-perishable goods for the Putnam County Emergency Food Pantry. The class chooses a new service project each grading period. The students have also served the Humane Society of Putnam County this semester. Pictured are, kneeling from left, Brayden Watson, Brittany Love, Lane Winslow, Rosemary Hurst, Samantha Haynes, Anthony Mitchell, Lexi Hardey, Savannah Howard; standing, Judy Miller of the food pantry, Alex Osborne, Devynn Brankel, Justin Mills, Mitchell Griffin, Luke Thomas, Trinity Brown and Mrs. Tesmer. Miller said numbers are way up at the food pantry, so any and all donations are welcome to remain well stocked. "It is such a blessing to us to feed the hungry of Putnam County and to hear many say to us that this is a blessing to them as they can have some food since they are out of work, ill or facing many other hardships," Miller said.
