About 30 volunteers showed up this week to help unload a truck of food from Second Harvest in Lorain. The food will be distributed to local residents by the Norwalk Area Food Bank.

The food comes from Second Harvest Food Bank two Thursdays a month. Volunteers form a food chain -- just like a bucket brigade -- to unload, move and store the food in a storage room, refrigerator or freezer. What used to take four or five people hours to do can now be done in less than 30 minutes.

Thank you to those generous folks who do this. No ticker tape parades, no glaring headlines, just folks caring about others. In these tough economic times it is the gererosity and kindness of others that can and will make a diffrence for those who are struggling, God Bless each and everyone for what you do. Kat

Ditto Kat! I do donate money to Second Harvest, but thats easy, they still have to have the "boots on the ground" to do the work!

@44846 GWP, Too often these acts go unoticed. While the criminal element gets our attention and comments. Hope that in the future that more folks will give their time and energies to projects such as this. It is rewarding, and although not all are grateful for the help they recieve, those who make it all worth it. We are blessed with a caring community most of which is done behind the scenes. Again God Bless those who care, and THANK YOU. Kat
