Tryon Congregational Church Feed-A-Family summer program

Published 9:48 am Friday, July 27, 2012

About 60 families participated in the program with 47 of them receiving delivery of meals and the others choosing to pick up their food at TBOM. Five delivery routes were designed, and volunteer drivers and helpers spent Wednesday afternoons taking the food around.  Routes encompassed most of Polk County from Saluda to Mill Spring, Green Creek to the Landrum line. In all, 28 church members volunteered to drive and deliver.
In order to fund this effort, a special collection was received on Sunday, May 13.  The generosity of the entire congregation was humbling. TBOM’s ability to purchase food made the dollars stretch a long way. It is hoped that the project will continue next summer and that even more Polk County residents can be helped in this important way.
There have been many, many of volunteers. Among them are: Marla Bailey, Carolyn Dailey, Robert Barrows, Cherie Brooks, Linda Byington, Lynette Conrad, Seth and Margie Davis, Barney and Linda Eiserloh, Ruth Foy, Dick and Ann Franklin, Peggy Franklin, Pat Gass, Sierra Godfrey, Sherry Godfrey, Tristen Godfrey, Dean Gregory, Carol Meeske, Paula Mierop, Gretchen and Doug Morris, Dianne Poague, Carol Jean and Kip Vosburgh, Manfred and Christel Walter, Andrea Walter, Ron Wingo, Ken and Priscilla Yeager, Ellen Harvey Zipf and Warner Zipf.
