Does south Pacific County deserve to be in the Guinness Book of Records?

Well, you would think so anyway, when a small area of Chinook and north up the Peninsula can raise nearly a $100,000 in three weeks or less toward food banks. Heck, the area has less than 11,000 people based on 2018 numbers. And not once but two years in row people have donated towards the Food Bank Challenge with both large and small donations.

If you were to gauge the health of a community, this would be the thermometer to measure that by — and it reads health, way above healthy, super healthy. Even with tough times, not being able to enjoy friends and family without worry or even going to the store, people still donated.

The goal is crystal clear — help people feed their families and put food on the table. As a member of the Loren H. Corder Foundation board, I would like to thank all those who donated, ran around putting up fliers, put up with my emails, and who volunteer day after day helping the community in those food banks. We have a community with soul and a big heart.

Again, thank you everyone for an outstanding 2020 Food Bank Challenge. Until next year, the Loren H. Corder Foundation wishes everyone the best in 2021.
