Donors, volunteers made summer lunch program a success

Editor,
Another successful year for Summer Lunches for Kids.
Once again the citizens of Fayette County rallied to meet a need in their community. Thanks to the faithful volunteers and the generosity of so many, we were able to provide more than 5,100 lunches to children in Vandalia, Shobonier, Vera, Ramsey and Brownstown this summer.
Back in March, we asked for donations to purchase food for the lunches and we were overwhelmed by your generosity. When we asked for jars of peanut butter and jelly, we received enough to make all the sandwiches we needed.
We called for volunteers to make the sandwiches, pack the lunches and deliver them to the distribution sites each day, and more than 70 people came to help.
Summer Lunches for Kids was successful because you were willing to give your time and money to care for the children living in our community.
Thanks for all your help.
