MOUNT VERNON — Food from Mount Vernon elementary schools was collected Monday as part of Food for the Hungry’s school food drive. The collection is being stored in a building space provided by Blubaugh Body and Frame.
Cindi Doolittle of Psi IOTA XI, coordinating partner for the elementary drive in the city, emphasized how this drive is really “neighbor helping neighbor” within the Knox County community. Psi IOTA XI oversaw collection from the Mount Vernon elementary and middle schools, as well as St. Vincent de Paul Elementary School.
“Thank you so much for supporting this project,” Doolittle added, explaining that the kids really seemed to get into the drive and wanted to donate.
