Roanoke Ski Club volunteers help feed area hungry

Saturday morning, August 21, twenty-two RSC members, family members, and hopefully two new members, took time from their busy schedules to provide much needed food to people in need.

The stats were amazing.  Volunteers processed more than 3 tons of food in 4 different stations at Feeding Southwest Virginia (formally known as the Food Bank).  Monday paid employees will stock the warehouse with the pallets prepared by RSC members.  Tuesday and Wednesday, area ‘agencies’ (like RAM house, churches, soup kitchens, etc.) will pick up the food.  Thursday people will start eating it.  And animals too.  Not only did RSC help process 3 tons of food, we also processed 200 pounds of dog and cat food that will go to the SPCA.

Thanks (in order they signed in) to Marilyn Donato, Jill and Gerry Betters, Mark and Ben Hanson, Hugh Scruggs, Chris Nuckols, Roger and Mandy Pommerenke, Becky Stinnett, Sherry Kessel, Tomy Trang, Clive, Sam and CJ Hillyard, Linda and Ed Staley, Karen Saunders, Sandy Light, Erin Spradling, and Ron and Barbara Nemura.
