• The 2019 Hunger Walk went well this year. It was on Monday May 27th. We had a team of 15 out there walking for the Open Door food pantry. We were able to raise $1,345 to pay for food for the pantry.
    The team consisted of the following members: Donna Alterio, Stacy Salles, Paul Keller, Sue Bowling, Brocha Evans, John and Chrissy Jump, Gary, Janet, and Zachary Neiheisel, Lane Rizkallah, Stacy Sands,
    Courtney Schmidt, Catherine Pickering, and team captain JoAnn McIntosh. We are very grateful to the others who could not walk but the donated money to help the cause. A big thank you goes out to all
    walkers and donors. Open Door is very grateful for your care and love!
