Retirement community supports food bank

the Inland Register

(From the Dec. 18, 2008 edition of the Inland Register)

When Sharon Tutwiler, Activities Coordinator at Rockwood Lane Retirement Community, heard that donations were down at the food bank to the point that people were lined up around the block waiting to receive food, she decided to ask the generous people she knows to do something. Sharon wrote a note to the residents at Rockwood, asking each person to donate two or three food items. Then she and Social Services Coordinator Catherine Kardong gathered up the 381 pounds of donated food, along with $215 in cash, and took it to the Second Harvest food bank.
