Chamber, Western Days, YAM Food drive

The Yorktown Chamber of Commerce recently held a canned food drive during the month of November to benefit Yorktown Assistance Ministries (YAM).  Local businesses participated in the effort by setting out donation boxes to accept food item donations from the public.  Following the drive, several boxes full of canned goods were delivered to YAM.  Pictured with the boxes are, from left:  Volunteer Johnny Smith;  Yorktown Chamber Executive Director Tammy Bitterly;  Chamber President Amy Lamprecht;  and YAM Representative John D. Hurst.  Hurst is also pictured receiving a donation check which was received during the drive.  Besides canned food donations, YAM also graciously accepts cash donations which are used to purchase food from the food bank.  News-View photo by Mari Gohlke
