Feed the Hungry searches for donors


BUCKHANNON  One local organization is asking for monetary donations so they can continue to feed children in the community every weekend.

Feed the Hungry is a local group that is part of Upshur County’s Backpack Buddies Program.

According to group organizer Donnie Tackett, the group is currently in need of monetary donations to continue helping the children in four schools across the county. The group provides food for 275 children each weekend.

Tackett said the group is also looking for a new location to house operations for their food pantry. Currently, the organization does not have a permanent location which would help things go smoother.

Feed the Hungry currently has drop off locations for food at various locations across Upshur County.

To find out more information, or to become a donor, please call Donnie Tackett at 304-516-6432.
