From Aaron LaGrange:
The second annual "Serving Owen County...Together" event was a great success, thanks to over 100 volunteers that helped throughout the day!
We directly served over 800 people with food, hygiene items, baby diapers/wipes, clothing, shoes, socks, toys, books and furniture. At the end of the day, additional food items also went to help support many Owen County residents that use our local food banks, OV Backpack Buddies, as well as the Sheriff's Department.
Special thanks to Babb’s Supermarket and Garrard Chapel Food Bank for donating shopping carts, Chicago's Pizza for donating many pizzas for our volunteers to eat at lunch, For Bare Feet and Second Steps for the many hundreds of pairs of shoes and socks given, the Owen County Sheriff's Department for logistical help throughout the event, and Spencer- Owen Schools for their staff help and facility use. Last, but not least, I want to give a huge shout out to our biggest partner, Servant's Heart. Bill Boone and company…you guys rock! We appreciate your continued partnership, blessings, and support!
