I would like to take the time to say a well done and thank you to Wal-Mart and their managing staff for their continuous support. People on the Peninsula should know that Wal-Mart continues to account for approximately 50 percent of all incoming food that local stores donate to the Kenai Peninsula Food Bank. This decision to support us and the residents of the community who are in need of help, has in no small way kept us from getting into a food deficit situation.
A special thank you to Bev Egan and Ferdinand Dominic, who at the last canned food drive, not only said yes to our holding it on their premises, but took away from their valuable time to pitch in and help us collect and load the bounty received from the generous residents of the Peninsula.
Wal-Mart does not just take up residence in our town; it is a friend and neighbor who put the interest of our community in the forefront of their decisions to help make things better for those in need.
