The organization FUNDING AMERICA THROUGH ENTERTAINMENT made a substantial donation to our Pantry. Josh Stack, Executive Director and Founder of F.A.T.E. presented a check for $2,200 to our Pantry to help purchase food. Josh was named “Person of the Week” by WLOS, Asheville, NC ABC affiliate, on August 2, 2013 for his work to raise money for local food banks.
Conscious Alliance held a food drive during the Lockn’ Festival again this year and collected 2,179.73 pounds of food during the four days for our Pantry.
B. J. Cochran, Operations Manager for Conscious Alliance along with assistants, Tara Arpino and Tyler Henry worked all four days collecting food at the festival and delivered it to the Pantry. Volunteers, Joe Mc Grory, Judy Greenberg, Cindy Bryant, Sandy Puttagio, Leslie Buchanan Dick Nees and Marian Dixon helped to weigh, sort and put all the food away.
