To the editor:

If there ever was a question as to whether Greenville and Hunt County “Cares and Shares,” FISH ministry was never aware of it. Every test on the “issue” has proven positive over the past 26 years of our life in the area.

Once again, the recent “Food Fight” sponsored by the Herald-Banner should put the issue to rest. We at FISH want to express our sincere thanks to the Herald-Banner and all the following “combatants” who participated in the skirmish … all of them winners: Noon Rotary Club, Atrusa Club, Golden Kiwanis Club, Fairview Baptist, Crossroads Realty, Daybreak Rotary Club, Greenville Lions Club, City of Greenville employees, Wesley Methodist Horizon class, Commerce Rotary Club, PCA Rehab, along with Herald-Banner employees and readers…. The over six tons of food gathered represents one of the largest ”pantry poundings” FISH has ever experienced! While the food definitely helps end a recent lengthy “drought” in our pantry, a ripple effect of the gifts puts FISH in a better position to assist Salvation Army in their Christmas assistance to many Hunt County families, while we take care of their “regular” daily food calls during the months of November-December … a longtime cooperation for many years now, but unknown to many.

Again, we continue to appreciate the strong support of Greenville and Hunt County from so many directions, support, without which neither FISH, nor any of our strong and hard-working non-profits could long exist !
