Local Food Pantry Receives Donation from Journey for Charity Tractor Cruise

Submitted by Rick Mueller, K of C 1927 Dutzow

In September, the Annual Knights of Columbus Journey for Charity Tractor Cruise raised over $42,000 and approximately 900 pounds of food. The donations and food collected along the route were donated to seven food pantries from southern Warren and central Franklin counties.

On November 8 at the K of C Hall in Union, those seven food pantries each received a check for $6093.00.
