Rhinelander Area Food Pantry needs your help designing a new logoSubmitted: 01/31/2014
Story By Lauren Stephenson


RHINELANDER - Calling all artists!

Volunteers at the Rhinelander Area Food Pantry need your help.

They want a new logo.

"We're hoping there's a number of artists in the area who would like to take a
shot at that and be creative and come up with a new logo that we could then use.
It would be on the sign on the building, it would be on the letterhead, it would
be used all over the places that we have events or things like that," said Bill
Vancos of the Rhinelander Area Food Pantry.

They're looking for simple logos that can be printed in both color and black and
white.

The logos should also have the name, "Rhinelander Area Food Pantry" or "RAFP" on
them.

It should also include food items or a grocery shopping image in it.

The pantry gave out more than 469,000 pounds of food last year.

They want to distribute even more this year.

Volunteers hope a new logo will make people more aware of their purpose.

"Normally we're out with our hat in our hand asking for donations or something.
This is kind of a little bit on the side. It's just hopefully a more fun event
that again will just help us in the future as we identify ourselves as we're out
and about in the community," added Vancos.

People can submit their designs to the food pantry though April 30th.

There will be a $100 cash prize.

Crews will start with the Davenport Street Bridge shutting down for a month in starting April 17.  Public Works Director Tim Kingman says some sections of concrete, sidewalk, and asphalt pavement shifted, settled and cracked over the winter.
