Over the past weekend was the “Stuff the Truck” event at Walmart and Chief Supermarket. 10,016 food items and $2,057.71 were collected with help from many volunteers, including Vantage Career Center Criminal Justice students, Vantage Career Center Early Childhood students, CERT, Highway Patrol, Van Wert Sheriff Department, United Way Board Members and more. Thank you to all the volunteers that make these events possible!
Stuff the Truck is the kick off to Vantage Day of Caring, which is set for Friday, September 30, 2022. Many of our local schools will be accepting donations, so be sure to check with your students to see if their class is competing to bring in the most donations. The public will also be able to donate anytime until Friday, Sept 30th when the barrels are picked up and sorted at the event. Take non-perishable food items like canned meat, peanut butter and mac & cheese to any of the barrels located at First Bank of Berne, First Financial Bank (Shannon St.), Flagstar Bank, Citizens National Bank, the Well Nutrition, or the United Way Office (136 E. Main St.).
