To the editor:
The Durgee Ecumenical Food Pantry in Marcellus would like to thank the walkers, donors, organizers and all those who helped with the Crop Hunger Walk for their efforts in alleviating hunger in Marcellus and also around the world.
Each local committee has the option of sharing with local hunger-fighting groups up to 25 percent of the money raised. As a result of choosing this option, the Marcellus Food Pantry recently received a check for $555.71 from Church World Service. At this time of increased need, this contribution is more important than ever in helping us to fulfill our mission in the community.
The food pantry volunteers are very grateful for this support from the community and we applaud all those who were involved with the Crop Hunger Walk.
Phyllis Budell, James Durgee Ecumenical Food Pantry
