Fulton Banks Fundraiser with Countrytrail Candles Makes The News!!
Posted on Wed, May 21, 2008 ~ Chronical Ledger News Group - Hershey, PA
Doug Gray, of the Derry Township Social Ministry and a member of St. Joan of Arc Church, accepts a donation for the ministry's food bank from the Hershey branch of Fulton Bank.
Throughout the month of April, the bank raised money for the food bank by selling soy candles made by customer Karen Zemitis.
"This is great news," said Gray, in accepting the donation. "We've had more and more people coming to the food bank with the economy and rising gas prices. We have a real need." The money will be used to help stock the food bank with essential items. The food bank is in particular need of donations of food and monetary support this spring. To help the bank, call 520-3143.
