Brinkley Walser Food Drive

Continuing what has become an annual tradition, Brinkley Walser law firm is again this year holding a holiday food drive to assist Pastor’s Pantry.

The Greensboro Urban Ministry also will benefit.

Brinkley Walser is accepting canned and boxed nonperishable food at its offices in Lexington (10 LSB Plaza) and Greensboro (620 Green Valley Road, Suite 306) through this Friday, Nov. 21, from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.Financial donations and grocery store gift cards also are appreciated.

Launched on Nov. 10, the drive will wrap up this Sunday, Nov. 23, at the Uptown Lexington Christmas Open House. From 1:00 to 5:00 that afternoon, the firm’s lawyers and staff members will collect donations at the Brinkley Walser booth on the Square in Lexington’s central business district.

The firm has conducted similar holiday drives the past few years.

Thank you, Brinkley Walser, for again helping Pastor’s Pantry!



Teen Volunteer Helps Pastor’s Pantry – Again!

Emerson Williams, a longtime volunteer at Pastor’s Pantry, delivered enough
donated food to the pantry recently to fill two grocery carts.

Emerson, a junior at Central Davidson High School, collected the food by
holding a drive in her Mill Stream neighborhood from Oct. 21 through Nov. 2.
She placed a food collection box at her garage door, and her neighbors
helped fill it.  The drive collected 362 food items in all, including grits, oatmeal, canned
vegetables, canned fruit, canned tuna, pasta, macaroni and cheese, Ramen
noodles, peanut butter, juice, and cocoa.

Emerson is the daughter of Melody and Alan Williams.  Her mother and a
Central High classmate, Maddie Blanton, helped her deliver the food to
Pastor’s Pantry after completion of the drive.

As a volunteer, Emerson has helped previously by stocking shelves and
pulling food for clients in our warehouse.  We look forward to having her

As she wrote in the food drive notice she sent to her friends and neighbors:
“Together we can make a difference!”

Thank you, Emerson!
