The annual Clarke County Veterans’ July Food Drive has just concluded. The veterans from both American Legion Post 41 and VFW Post 9760, along with the good people of Clarke County, have made this year’s effort another success. Almost 1,000 pounds of food has been delivered to the FISH of Clarke County Food Pantry in Berryville, along with cash in the amount of $1,270.
This joint effort between our veterans and citizens to collect both money and food for the benefit of the less fortunate in Clarke County, is one in which we all can take great pride. We extend special thanks to our friends who provide locations for our collection barrels: Duncan Memorial United Methodist Church, Berryville Baptist Church, Grace Episcopal Church, Berryville Presbyterian Church, Berryville Shop and Save, VFW Post 9760, and American Legion Post 41.
The two veterans’ organizations thank the citizens of Clarke County for their effort and their generosity. During the past nine years, the Veterans’ Food Drive has contributed almost six tons of food and almost $8,000 to the FISH Food Pantry.
