Food drive

Vicky Underwood, far right, and her friends, from left, Missy Kise, Pam Fisher Boles and Jay Boles, were among those who conducted the 5th annual Food Drive Saturday in Gauley Bridge. Food donations went to EnAct in Montgomery for distribution during the holiday season.

Each year for five years, Vicky Underwood has organized a food drive during the holiday season to help a local food pantry.

This year, Underwood said the program's success was thrilling.

"What can I say?! Our 5th annual Food Drive was the biggest ever

"I want to thank everyone that donated from the bottom of my heart! My car and trunk is packed and we received $305 in donations to buy more food with," she said in a message to those who supported the program.

"Thank you, Gauley Bridge Volunteer Fire Department, for letting us set up and also a big thank you to The Town of Gauley Bridge for letting us have our event there. Last but not least, I want to thank some special friends of mine that take time to support this cause every year by sitting with me all day, helping with early donations, helping me load food, advertising, etc. Thank you Kristen Shamblin, Missy Kise, Bub Kise, Lindsay Kise, Pam Fisher Boles and Jay Boles."

Underwood delivered the donated food to EnAct in Montgomery, and then went shopping to buy additional food with the monetary donations.
