Food Collection for
VA Food Pantry at Montrose
On October 1st, 2011, 19 Legionnaires from our Post conducted our fifth annual
VA Food Pantry Collection at two supermarkets in Yorktown.  In just 4 short
hours we collected 14 shopping carts of food and $723 in cash donations.  100% of
everything we collect goes to the Pantry  to help the veterans in need using the
Food Pantry to survive with dignity in this difficult world.
Fred Wooding mans the table as our stockpile grows in the background.
Ken Blish, Cas Faughnan, and Gerry Knapp cover the exits and collect
the donations from the shoppers.
Tom Brady, Ed Augustine, Ralph Garcia, and Terry DeVeau pause for
a breather.
Some people gave just one item and some, like this lovely woman,
handed over their entire shopping cart!
