Local Store's Food Drive Brings In 28-Hundred Pounds Of Donations
For a while now, an office at Wettstein's has resembled a pantry...with boxes and cans of food stacked up against the wall.
The 28-hundred pounds of food donated to the store during May are being divided up between the Salvation Army and the WAFER food shelf. Store owner Dan Wettstein says the month-long promotion brought in many more visitors than the regular customers...for example, a man who brought in 10 pounds of food without shopping for anything from Wettstein's. The 3rd Street store offered bargains on appliance sales and services in exchange for the food items donated.
