“With over 10,000 pounds of food and $5,000 of online donations, we almost doubled our efforts from last year’s food drive,” said Corey Yingling, food drive leader. “The excitement and willingness of our staff with projects such of these is infectious. It makes you proud to work for such a great organization that truly cares about the health and well-being of our community.”
