Gulf County GOP thanks all for food drive

Published: Thursday, December 12, 2013 at 08:49 AM.


Dear Editor,

The Republican Party “Stock the Food Pantry” drive in November was incredibly successful. County residents were in the spirit and very generous.  Six truck/carloads of pre-bagged grocery staples were delivered to the Pantry. Gift cards for perishable items purchased with cash donations.

Special thanks also to Boy Scout Troop 47 who supported the event at the Dollar General Store. 

Our greatest thanks and a special salute however must go to Mr. George Duren and the employees of the “Piggly Wiggly”. They spent many hours stocking selected items in pre-packed $5 and $10 bags of the needed items.  This made donating very simple. Their attitude was positive, helpful, and very inspiring throughout the campaign.  Thank you!  You are a great asset to our community. 

The event was so successful that Gulf County Republican Party is working of the logistics of holding the drive quarterly.  Party volunteers enjoyed the experience, and are enthusiastic about future opportunities to support our neighbors.
