Pantry requests fruit, radio broadcast set, stores offer deals

GROVE CITY — Fruits and fruit juices are some of the Grove City Community Food Pantry’s favorite choices, but as winter goes on, the stock dwindles.

That is why the pantry is requesting this delicious and nutritious food for their shelves during February.

Whether it is just one can or an entire case, these donations will put a smile on the faces of all of the clients at the pantry.

 

Some of the items that the food pantry is requesting are:

-- Any shelf-stable canned fruit, such as peaches, pears, mandarin oranges, and pineapple.

-- Shelf-stable 100 percent fruit juice.

-- Shelf-stable fruit products, such as applesauce, apple butter, fruit cocktail, fruit snacks, and fruit roll-ups.

-- Fresh fruit of any kind.

-- Dried fruit, such as raisins, prunes, dates, apricots, apples, and berries.

-- Fruit for special diets, such as water-packed or “no sugar added” fruit products.

Tax-deductible contributions will be gratefully accepted at 114. S. Center St., in person, through the mail, or through the secure online donation feature at www.gccommunityfoodpantry.org

Also, Ithen Global, next to the N. Broad Street railroad tracks in downtown Grove City, is holding a $1 T-shirt sale and is donating $1 to the food pantry for every T-shirt purchased through the end of February.

In addition, anyone who brings in 10 or more canned goods will receive a free Pittsburgh T-shirt of their choice.

                                                                ¥ ¥ ¥

And during February, all adult clothing at Grove City Community Food Pantry’s Thrifty Threads thrift shop is half price, which means a bag of six or seven items can be bought for only $1.

All proceeds go directly to the pantry, which this month is requesting fruit and fruit-related products.

Tax-deductible donations can also be accepted at 114 S. Center St. or through the secure website: www.gccommunityfoodpantry.org

The food pantry is on Facebook and is supported by Grove City Area United Way, organizations, churches, and individuals throughout the community. Anyone in need of food pantry services or anyone interested in volunteering can call Traci Turner at 724-458-5208.

The Grove City Area United Way is kicking off a summer campaign that features locals who are examples of how to "Live United." The first, Greg Merkle, above, has been a volunteer firefighter with the Grove City Volunteer Fire Department for 14 years. "It all started when I was 16 years old living in Harrisville, and was a volunteer with their department for eight and a half years. After moving to Grove City, I missed being with a volunteer fire department, so I decided to join Grove City's Department. What I like the most of being part of the GCVFD is that I've been able to help the community. If you are looking for ways to help, serving here would be a great way to do it." Later this summer, readers will have a chance to submit stories and win prizes.

  • THE CHECKERED FLAG: Up and down week for Sodeman

    LAST FRIDAY I headed south to add I-77 Raceway Park to my track attended list, which made for 162nd track all-time.  I-77 is located south of Ripley, West Virginia just off Interstate 77.  This season, I-77 moved from the crowded Saturday night line-up to Friday night racing and teamed up with Ohio Valley Speedway.  I-77 normally runs Super Late Models, Semi-Late Models, E-Mods, Mod Lites, and 4-Cylinder Mini Stocks.  With the Sprint Cars on the schedule, I decided to make the trip and they were joined by the Super Late Models, Semi-Late Models, and E-Mods.

  • THE CHECKERED FLAG: Blaney still running hot on area tracks

    LAST THURSDAY I headed southwest to Atomic Speedway, formerly known as KC Raceway.  The 1/3-mile high-banked dirt oval is located an hour south of Columbus, Ohio just off Route 23 near Alma.  It was my first visit in a couple years.  A big crowd turned out on Independence Day Eve as the All Star Circuit of Champions Sprint Cars were back along with the Super Late Models and E-Mods.  The Ohio Speedweek event the week before drew a huge 62-car field and Thursday’s event drew 33.
    After an astounding Speedweek winning the final three races and four of six, Dale Blaney returned to the track that he last got defeated at.  On the Speedweek show, Jac Haudenschild made the winning pass of Blaney, while Blaney finished second.  Last Thursday, even a seventh starting spot didn’t derail Blaney for long.  The Hartford, Ohio racer worked his way to the front and made the winning pass of race-long leader Tim Shaffer on lap 16.  One caution three laps from the finish was all that slowed Blaney’s run to another $5,000 payday.  It was Blaney’s fourth straight win, sixth of the season, and all-time leading 105th of his career with the All Stars.

  • EXTRA INNINGS: Bucs fans loved Burnett, but let's leave him in Philly

    THERE IS NO no doubt that A.J. Burnett made a huge impact during his two seasons with the Pirates.
    When he arrived in the spring of 2012, so did hope for fans wearied by teams that hadn’t seen a winning record in 20 summers.
    While he certainly did not turn the tide by himself, he turned the wheel. His swagger sometimes didn’t play well with management, but even the Buc brass had to appreciate the new culture that Burnett helped his teammates create.
