Food bank drive does Bob Russell's memory proud

July 18, 2011

We live in a great community. The Fourth of July, civic activism, and Food for Tomorrow created an unbeatable team. During the Longfellow parade, volunteers pushed grocery carts, collecting food from parade-goers. Afterwards, those same volunteers collected food from shoppers at the Hickory Ridge Village Center. As a result of the community's generosity, over 1,100 pounds of food were donated in memory of Bob Russell to the Howard County Food Bank.

Food for Tomorrow, a student-run project, will continue to be in the community. Look for the volunteers at various centers over the next few months. When you see them, please consider a donation to the Howard County Food Bank.

They will also be in the Firemen's Parade at the Howard County Fair. If you are coming out, bring a can or two. It is a great way to help our friends and neighbors in need.
