The response to St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Shop & Food Bank and the Shelton Volunteer Fire Departments’ joint Food and Clothing Drive for Texas has been a huge success due to the incredible generosity of so many individuals, churches and businesses in the valley. Due to the success of the drive so far, the joint effort will continue to the end of this week.
What this huge effort needs now is funds for fueling the two trucks on their round trip journey which has been estimated at a total cost of $8,000.
