Businesses make donations to the Cass County Food Pantry

    Jennings Beardstown recently sponsored a food drive to benefit the Cass County Food Pantry. Jennings agreed to give $1.50 per item collected. JBS donated a large number of food items to the cause as well, and by the end of the food drive on Monday, Dec. 21, there were two pick-up truck beds full of goods to be donated to the pantry.
    True to their word, General Manager Bill McLaughlin presented food pantry Director Joanne Anderson with a $2000 check when food pantry representatives came to pick up the food items.
    Beardstown West Central Bank employees also made a donation to the food pantry of $300 dollars. Employees donate money each pay period to their “Casual Friday” fund in order to contribute to local charities throughout the year.
