RHINELANDER - A food pantry that depends on generosity saw a lot of it Friday. The pantry teamed up with Trig's and Bremer's Furniture to help out local families in need.
Volunteer Bill Vancos didn't mind giving his free time this morning to a bigger cause. "It's very heartwarming to do this. It's a shame that people are still in need," said Vancos.
The Rhinelander Area Food Pantry set up a donation drive in front of Trig's Friday morning.
Rhinelander Food Pantry Treasurer, Ginger Chroback, joined the event to help customers figure out what to donate. She said macaroni and cheese, cans of soups, and pastas are food staples that are always helpful items to donate.
If people still aren't sure what to give, there are premade donation bags $12. Trig's offers the bags daily for food pantry donations.
Assistant Store Director Tim Gould was happy to participate. "It's great to be able to support the community, and not just from just the store but from a personal stand point as well," said Gould.
Bremer's chipped in to store and ship the food. They will also be matching all donations dollar-for-dollar.
