The Greenbrier Valley Board of Realtors Feed the Need Committee had their first meeting on Oct. 2 at the Bob Evans Restaurant in Lewisburg.
The meeting was held at Bob Evans Restaurant to help support the First Baptist Church of Rainelle Food Pantry. The restaurant agreed to donate 15 percent of the guests’ check total (from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.) to the Rainelle Food Pantry.
The Greenbrier Valley Board of Realtors’ 4th annual “Feed the Need” Community Food Drive started Oct. 10 and ends Tuesday, Dec. 9.
On Oct. 10, Realtor Terry F. Baker delivered home baked goodies to Buck Williams and Teresa Bostic at Foxfire Realty. Terry baked several cakes, cookies and brownies, which she accepted donations for, and then graciously sent the donations to the Feed the Need Fund. Baker raised $112 for her baked goods.
Robert Bittinger Jr., founder and chairman of the GVBOR Feed the Need Food Drive states, “In the first three years we have raised a total of $22,200.” Robert says this wouldn’t be possible without his Co-Chair, Keith S. Shaver and their dedicated Committee members (made up of real estate Brokers, Agents and several Board Affiliates). “These folks volunteer their time, resources and make donations themselves! They are motivated to make a difference and really care about the folks living in our local communities. Just as important, our local businesses: Sav-A-Lot, Kmart, Corner Stone IGA and Kroger, all of Fairlea; Wal-Mart of Lewisburg, Kroger in Rainelle and Ashleys Food Pride of Union have been fantastic to work with year after year. We are so thankful for their participation and assistance with our food drive. It’s important to note that ALL donations made to the Feed the Need Food Drive stay right here in our local communities. Giving a little or a lot; it’s still giving! It’s something to feel really good about.”
