FOOD BANK CHALLENGE - Donald and Gail Spencer of Seaford were reading the newspaper last week when they came upon an article on the local food bank. They spoke with their daughter, Susan Michel, who attends St. John's United Methodist Church, about how the food bank was organized. Susan made a call to Cheryl Coffin, who helps manage the food bank. She arranged a meeting for her parents and Cheryl to see the food closet. After meeting with Cheryl, Don and Gail made a gift of $1,000 to be used for the food closet. They also put out a challenge to St. John's United Methodist Church this past Sunday to match any funds collected up to $500. As of Tuesday, an additional $700 had been donated, bringing the total donation to the food bank $2,200. The Spencer's are trying to draw attention to the food bank, so that the shelves stay full and families in need of food are provided for. Shown at St. John's upon making a donation from left are: Susan Michel, Don Spencer, Gail Spencer, Cheryl Coffin and Arcie Burton.
