The Venison for Food Banks of Preble County program is on-going. Anyone who takes a deer can donate all or part of the meat for the Foodbanks. We have sponsors who will take care of the processing fees. You may contact Brad Turner, Preble County Game Warden, or Curtis Early at 937-533-3226.
Foodbank served 78 families during November. This includes 34 seniors, 102 children and a total of 283 individuals. Volunteers at the West Alex Foodbank are coordinating another busy holiday season by providing a blessed Christmas for families. The foodbank will provide a holiday basket for families who qualify and live in the Twin Valley School District. This includes food and gifs for the children. This holiday season we invite everyone to learn more about the foodbank ministry and join in a partnership with us in sharing the spirit of giving. You may do this by adopting a family, providing an item for the food baskets, or through a monetary gift. For additional information, please call the foodbank at 839-1615. Items needed are egg noodles, mac & cheese, pork & beans, tuna, pancake syrup, shampoo and toothpaste. The Foodbank is open from 10 a.m. to noon on Mondays and Wednesdays and is located at St. John Church, 20 E. South Street. Contact the Foodbank at 839-1615 for additional information. Non-perishable donations can also be dropped off at Salem and St. John Lutheran Churches the first Sunday of each month.
