4-H members come through for needy
One of the hardest things that the Sevier County Food Ministries has to find is tuna. The canned fish is prime and goes along way when it comes to helping the needy residents in the county.
Tuesday, October 26, the 4-H Club members came through for the ministry in a big way. Glenn Turner and all the affiliates got together at Sevierville Intermediate School, bringing donated cans of tuna and money collected to a central point for collection. After all the tuna and money was counted the students, parents and 4-H members headed for the auditorium to hear the total collected.
It was a spectacular turnout as Glen Turner and his crew of volunteers went through all the slips that were handed in and at the tally point.
“We were hoping for 2000 cans of tuna for the ministries,” said Streibig. “That would go along way to help. Streibig got not only his 2000 cans, he took home an additional 2090 cans to the food ministry, for a total of 4090 cans. In addition to the tuna, over $1,300 in cash was donated.
Anyone can donate to the Food Ministries located next to the Sevier County Fairgrounds. Everyone that receives the tuna this year should be thankful for the 4-H clubs efforts in collecting the needed food and cash.
