LEWISBURG, W.Va. (WVDN) – Robert Bittinger Jr., chairman of the GVBOR’s Feed the Need program, states that at each year-end meeting with all the food pantry directors, he asks if any director/pantry has a “wish item” needed by the pantry.
2022 yielded three wish items.
On Thursday, Feb. 23, Bittinger followed the Lowe’s delivery team to Wellspring of Greenbrier Inc. to deliver a new GE flat top range/oven. They then travelled to the First Baptist Church of Rainelle Food Pantry to deliver a new Whirlpool deep chest freezer. Lastly, they drove to Greenbrier Community Services Williamsburg Pantry to deliver another new Whirlpool deep chest freezer.
Bittinger, all smiles, says he is so proud to be a small part of something this big.
“It’s a true honor to represent our board and all of its very generous members and affiliates. It’s amazing to see so many members and affiliates volunteer their time and donate monetarily to our community program,” he said. “It’s their generosity that enables us to help those in need in our communities.”
Bittinger also recognized the food pantry directors and volunteers.
“They are true heroes in our communities,” he said.
