Bag Hunger

Dear Editor

Macy’s at the Ohio Valley Mall has just completed their Bag Hunger Drive. This is a project sponsored by Macy’s each year in support of a local food pantry. This year Bag Hunger supported the Bridgeport Food Pantry. The employees at Macy’s contributed over $800.00 which will be matched by Macy’s Corporate Office. Under the leadership of Chairperson Bobbie Dove employees not only gave financial donations and canned goods but of their time in coming to the pantry after work and doing “spring cleaning” and restocking shelves.

This is one of several programs sponsored by Macy’s to give back to the community and we are so appreciative that our pantry was chosen. The number of families being served has increased and we have expanded our hours of distribution.

The pantry, located at 630 Main St., serves the Bridgeport School District and hours of service are Monday and Thursday from 10 a.m. until 1p.m. and the second and fourth Wednesday evenings from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m.

Again thank you to all Macy employees.

Carol Grandstaff

Bridgeport Food Pantry
