Thankful for food drive support
On behalf of Boy Scout Troop 1321, I want to thank the manager, Mr. David Hanna, the staff and the customers of the La Plata Giant for supporting our food drive on Dec. 11, which benefited both the Christ Church food pantry in La Plata and the Life Point Church food pantry in Waldorf.
Due to the generosity of many customers, we collected 2,500 pounds of non-perishable food items and received over $200 in cash donations for additional food item purchases. These food pantries serve many families and meet a tremendous need in our local community. The generous spirit demonstrated by the management, staff and customers of the La Plata Giant will go a long way in helping to lessen the struggle of local families to obtain adequate food.
