Jourdanton Junior High School held a Canned Food Drive for Madison and Tanner McCleary. The #SpreadkindnessforMandT movement promotes acts of kindness in honor of the late McCleary siblings.
The food was donated to the First Baptist Church of Jourdanton Food Pantry. On Nov. 3, FBC Jourdanton Pastor Wade Brand and Tony and Shirley Scogin of the FBC Food Pantry loaded up the canned food, aided by some of the students.
“The Food Pantry at FBC Jourdanton would like to thank the Jourdanton Junior High students for their generous donation of 1,805 cans and $164,” said Pastor Brand. “The Food Pantry has served Atascosa County for the past two years, and your donation will help provide meals for the 90 plus families we are currently serving on a monthly basis. We are blessed to be a part of this wonderful community and thankful for your support.”
The FBC Jourdanton Food Pantry partners with the San Antonio Food Bank. It is held on the third Saturday of the month from about 9:30 a.m. until supplies last.
