REMAX collects "a ton of food" for pantry

REMAX in the Hills has stepped forward and provided valuable support for the Spearfish Community Food Pantry. 
REMAX realtors and staff collected food donations from shoppers last weekend at Spearfish Walmart on Friday (8/26) and Safeway on Saturday (8/27).  When they were done, they had collected 2,230 pounds, which they delivered earlier Monday (8/29) to the pantry.
“It couldn’t have come at a better time,” said pantry president Karen Miller.

“The number of people who rely on the pantry to help them through tough times continues to grow.  Fortunately, the generosity of area citizen allows us to keep pace with the increased demand.  But we couldn’t do it without community partners like REMAX in the Hills.”
It addition to the truck load of food, REMAX collected $162.00 in cash, which will assist the pantry in purchasing non-donated food.
