CENTERBURG — Seven years after her passing, Jacqueline McCalla-Cordle’s legacy continues to make a difference in the lives of families in the Centerburg area.

Saturday, the Centerburg community will be asked to join in that mission by donating non-perishable food items, or monetary donations, to Jacque’s Kids Pantry.

After her passing in 2010, the Cordle, Gilkerson and Dobbins families all continued Cordle’s work within the Centerburg community through The Salvation Army and other community involvements. On Dec. 27, 2013, the organization had grown and the Jacqueline McCalla-Cordle Children’s Fund was officially established — on Jacqueline’s birthday.
