Congratulations to Gary and Carole Burkhart of Lexington who recently celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary! The Burkhart’s were honored with a reception hosted by their children and requested food donations for Pastor’s Pantry in lieu of gifts. 557 food items were donated as a result of this family’s compassion and generosity toward their neighbors in Davidson County.
Thank you so much!
Our 7th Annual Pack A Pickup “Foodraiser” was very successful in spite of the weather! With the help of local businesses, grocery stores and our loyal supporters, we collected 6,462 food items. Pictured below are the businesses who held food drives in support of the event: Brinkley Walser Law Firm, Breeden Insurance Services, Turlington & Company, Mountcastle Insurance, The Dispatch, Edward Jones Financial Advisors, NewBridge Bank, Hair Personalities, SII Dry Kilns and Your Pharmacy of Lexington. In addition, Orrell’s Food Service and Conrad & Hinkle donated food items, and we received gift cards from Food Lion and from all 3 Walmart stores in the county (Lexington, Midway and Thomasville) – we used the gift cards to shop at the stores who donated them and purchased groceries for the event.
Many thanks to our volunteers, the businesses and organizations who donated food, car wash customers and especially to Sam Allen and John Leonard at Sam’s Car Wash in Lexington who hosted the event on behalf of Pastor’s Pantry!
