We had another great week supporting our counties and families through the SCHRA Commodity Distribution program. Once again, the volunteers that showed up to give their time and talents made each day a success and we are grateful for their assistance. This week the truck put some major miles on the odometer as we visited Franklin County, Coffee County, Wayne County, Lewis County and ended the week in Moore County.
On Monday, we traveled to Winchester in Franklin County. Thanks to the help of our volunteers and staff were able to have very successful event. We were also thrilled to have State Representative Iris Rudder there to help load up the vehicles that came through.
On Tuesday, we headed to Manchester and Coffee County. Besides our fabulous volunteers and staff that make this event happen each quarter; we were thrilled that some of the wonderful members of the Manchester Fire and Rescue Department joined us in supporting Coffee County families. They assisted us in keeping the lines moving and the families getting some help that was needed.
On Wednesday, we made the trek west to Wayne County stopping in Waynesboro. Once again, the dedication of our volunteers and staff to the families of Wayne County made sure that the event was a success. It was a busy day for the volunteers and staff as 230 families came by to say hi and take part in this distribution event for the quarter.
Thursday, we headed north to Hohenwald and Lewis County. It was a gorgeous day and even though we had to switch locations, there was a great turn out. Once again, without the help of our volunteers and staff this event would not be the success it was. We were so happy to have Lewis County Mayor Jonah Keltner out with us. We are incredibly appreciative for his support for this program and for the agency as a whole. We were so happy to have been able to help over 200 Lewis County families with the distribution this quarter.
We ended the week visiting Lynchburg and Moore County. The weather stayed great for us and we were thrilled to see the approximately 50 families we had come through. It is always a great day when County Mayor Bonnie Lewis stops by for a visit. We are grateful for her support. As always, without our volunteers and staff that do all the set up and delivery these events would not be able to be the successes they are.
As always, SCHRA headquarters wants to say THANK YOU to all of our incredible volunteers and staff that are giving of their time and muscle to make sure that each of the county commodity distribution events not only happens, but is successful. We are grateful for the support that you are giving us as well as your communities and families.
