Giving back

Alan Shapiro never imagined his humble food drive would get so much attention.

For weeks, he'd been dropping reminders that he planned to park the family RV outside the Depot last Thursday and collect food for the local hungry.

Of course, his fellow Rotary members gave money and cans, as did some of the fine folks who work in the downtown area. But when Thomson Middle School signed on with a can competition between classes, the Rock Mill Plantation food drive became something special.

Mr. Shapiro, his wife Judy and Agape Outreach Ministries Director Margaret Sharp spent most of the day camped out at the Depot. In the end, the drive raised more t han 1,200 pounds of food.

It's little efforts like this that mean the most to the core of a community. The Shapiros deserve a pat on the back for their efforts, as does every person who took the time to donate to their cause.
