To the citizens of Carroll County, we’d like to thank you all for your contributions to the recent "Scouting for Food" food drive. Your generosity is much appreciated.  

As previously communicated, the 2008 count was eclipsed by nearly 1,700 items, approximately 14,800 items in all….this despite a continued sour economy. This was awesome.

The Carroll County Schools continue to do an outstanding job of supporting the food pantry – couldn’t do it without you.

Thanks also to the Dow Corning Operations Team for nearly 2,500 items.

Finally, thanks to all of the volunteers that came out to help with flier distribution, food pick-up, sorting and shelf stocking – having nearly 80 people show up for pick-up helped out immensely.

 Many folks will benefit from your efforts as the food is distributed throughout the local community – so thanks again!
