South Anson Community Outreach of Morven, or SACOM, operates a food bank in Morven that serves anywhere from 90-130 families each month.
On Thursday morning, Pat McCoy, an employee at the Anson County Jail, donated a few baskets full of canned goods and other non-perishable food items to the food bank for distribution this holiday season. McCoy, who is the district missionary president for the Women Home and Overseas Missionary Society in Rockingham, presented the donations to Ross Streater, county commissioner and also the vice chairman of the SACOM food bank.
McCoy said the food donation was part of the Women Home and Overseas Missionary Society’s “Cans of Hope, Cans of Love” project.
Streater encouraged anyone who would like to donate to the Morven food bank to contact him, chairman Theodore Carr, treasurer Barbara Williamson, or Jack and Betty Ratliff.
Also on Thursday morning, McCoy donated books to the jail’s inmate library from WHOM Society.
