Letter to the Editor – Food pantry gets new refrigerator

Opinion

Dear Editor:

A huge thank you to Bob Schierbach and the Fort Madison Community Hospital for the timely donation of a roll-out commercial refrigerator to the North Lee County Food Pantry.
During the summer months the Food Pantry is gifted with a large amount of fresh produce from the United Way garden, “uber” gardeners and local farmers.   The Pantry’s Board began to dream of a refrigerator that would extend the life of that produce, and then, out of the blue, I received a call from Bob offering us a refrigerator that they were no longer using.   Serendipity!   Further, Mohrfeld Electric offered to install it gratis.
I continually am blown away by the generosity of our community.  So, a huge thank you to all who make possible the Pantry’s mission to serve the impoverished residents of North Lee County by offering healthy food and provide the opportunity for neighbors to help neighbors.

-Lin Cramer, Board president
North Lee County Food Pantry
