Some 25 families benefited from an Easter food drive executed by a local non-profit, Red Root Inc.
According to a release from the organization, this was the Red Root’s first food drive for 2022, “visiting persons living between the villages of Clare Valley and Stubbs Village blessing them with a grocery bag with various food and hygiene products”.
“During this food drive the organization met with numerous unemployed and underemployed women with children and used the opportunity encourage them to be apart of the organizations upcoming skills training programs for the year 2022 which they can benefit from and make a living,” the release stated.
“A maximum of twenty five grocery Bags where distributed to twenty five families during this food drive making it a success,” the release added.
The release further stated:
“While the organization wish they could have deliver more bags to more families, donations permitted them only twenty five. They are hopeful that more donations of food items would be sent to them that we can organize another food drive reaching more persons and more villages during this year 2022.
