The an­nual food drive was an­other great suc­cess in the val­ley as vol­un­teers went door-to-door col­lect­ing food to fill The Sal­va­tion Army Food Bank for those in need. Or­ga­niz­ers Kim Sun­t­jens, left, and Sum­mer Manca were also able to muster a strong con­tin­gent of vol­un­teers who sorted the do­nated items. Cap­tain Jen­nifer Hil­lier of The Sal­va­tion Army is grate­ful for the sup­port. “This is one of the events I love be­cause it comes full cir­cle,” said Hil­lier. “We have en­tire families com­ing out, they give, they help sort and ev­ery­one par­tic­i­pates. It is a great fam­ily event.” She said this is the ma­jor food drive for The Sal­va­tion Army that helps stock its food bank for the com­ing sea­son be­yond Christ­mas. “It is fan­tas­tic, there is a great turnout tonight and we want to thank the com­mu­nity for con­tin­u­ing their sup­port,” said Hil­lier.
