To the Editor,
The Community Bread Basket takes this opportunity to thank all those that participated in the recent Walking out Hunger. First, I want to thank Mr. Tom Knopp, director of Good Samaritan Center in Kenova, West Virginia, for bringing hunger awareness to Hancock County. Thanks also to Mayor George Kondik and Hancock County Commissioner Dan Greathouse who walked with Mr. Knopp here in Weirton. A special thank you to City Manager Valerie Means and Chief of Police Bruce Marshall for their help in arranging for safety during the walk.
We also need to thank all of the volunteers who canvassed the businesses during the tag day on May 11. Special thanks to Paul Duffy of Elks Lodge 1801 for organizing the canvass volunteers. Thanks also to Keith Huntzinger, the Scouts and parents of Troop 334 and the teachers and students from Saint Paul Grade School. And thank you to WTOV9 and Linda Harris and Summer Wallace-Minger from The Weirton Daily Times for their continued support of Community Bread Basket.
Finally, without the support of the following businesses that allowed tag day at their businesses, this would not have been successful: Tudor's Biscuit World, First Choice Credit Union, Suzanne's Hallmark, Kwik-King, Ponderosa Steak House, Kmart, Shop 'n Save, Convenient Food Mart of Pennsylvania Avenue and Wal-Mart.
Bishop J.D. Wall, Chairman
