Pulaski AmVets again help feed area hungry

For the second year in a row, AmVets Post No. 50 of Pulaski has garnered support from its membership to provide food for those in need in the community.
With more than $1,000 raised in donations, the fraternal oranization bought food boxes from SHARE Virginia in Radford and assembled them at their post Monday morning, Dec. 21.
First Vice Commander Frank Thompson, this year’s organizer, said that both Food City and Food Lion contributed some items like milk and eggs. "But the bulk of the food we bought with our own money," he added.
According to 2nd Vice Commander Mike Banscome, the recipients of the food boxes were selected by asking the community, beginning with its own membership with questions such as, who just lost a job… who got sick and can’t work… the shut ins…
"We then put the names on a list on the board until we reached the limit and then we take the food boxes to their homes."
The member volunteers use their own time and vehicles to make the deliveries.
