Kudos to those who donate to food closet


How about that Pau-Wa-Lu Middle School seventh-grade leadership class? Within just two weeks their leadership class gathered a whopping donation of 1,865 pounds of food for the Carson Valley Community Food Closet. They even helped us load it into the truck, for which our backs thank you. We send out our sincere thanks to those wonderful kids and share their excitement about how well they did.

We are so appreciative of every donation and want to acknowledge every one of you, even those who wish to remain anonymous.
