News: Cherry Point Feds Feed Families campaign rolls on
Story by Cpl. Santiago G. Colon Jr.
MARINE CORPS AIR STATION CHERRY POINT, N.C. — Kerry Stratton and Elaine Taylor, volunteers for the Feds Feed Families campaign continued to collect donations given at the Cherry Point commissary, troop store and other locations, Aug. 3. Since the beginning of the campaign, Cherry Point personnel have donated more than 4,500 lbs. of non-perishable food delivered to local food banks. The federal-wide food drive is in response to food bank shortages during the summer months as children are left without school nutrition programs.
"It has been really successful this year," said Kerry Stratton, Cherry Point Anti-Terrorism Office mission assurance officer. "We have exceeded the total amount of donations from last year in just July."
Donation boxes are located at several locations across the air station including Marine Mart, Marine Corps Exchange, and the Pass and Identification office. For more information on the program visit www.FedsFeedFamilies.gov
