COSHOCTON – Members of the community 4-H clubs collected about 520 canned foods at the Coshocton Grain Company to be donated to New Life Ministries and the Nellie Food Pantry. On Thursday, Aug. 8, volunteers gathered at Coshocton Grain to help transport the food over to the two food pantries.

“We wanted to bring awareness to the community to thank Coshocton Grain for their years of support to 4-H,” said D. Woodward Wells, member of the advisory committee. “Since it’s a grain company, we decided to do a canned food drive. This is just to thank them.”

The community 4-H clubs have been collecting canned foods for the whole month of July, and more programs will be coming up through the end of the year. In September, 4-H members who bring their evaluation sheet to Domino’s will receive a free personal pizza or cinnasticks with purchase. In October, they will be collecting hats and mittens to donate. In November, the clubs will be donating items to veterans, and in December, they will be helping with Christmas Castle.
