When the Food Bank barrels were delivered, Rachel, one of our students called a local Nob Hill Grocery, Walmart, and Ace Hardware store, to ask if we could place barrels in their businesses. They were all extremely cooperative and the public response to our barrels was overwhelming. In the three weeks that we held our drive we collected from students, and participating businesses around 1,500 lbs. of food, as well as a $100.00 check donated to the Food Bank by a generous donor. We would like to say a big “Thank You,” to all of the businesses and people in the community who supported our efforts.
