Fill a Ford

Farm Bureau members Sheila Neal, Carolyn Poston, Lori Major, Lynda Sparkman, Joseph Storehouse co-founder Peggy Evans, Farm Bureau member Geneva Vance and Bates Ford Representative Ronnie Kelley help fill a Bates Ford truck with food.

The Wilson County Farm Bureau Ladies Leadership Committee has been busy collecting food for the Fill A Ford With Food Campaign over the last couple months. With lots of help from 4-H, Farm Bureau office staff and Farm Bureau patrons, we were literally able to fill a Ford. The project ended this month and Joseph Storehouse was selected as the recipient. Joseph Storehouse is well known for its food ministry across the county. Their warehouse was somewhat depleted due to the recent tornado and helping those affected. Bates Ford provided a new Ford truck for the delivery.

We collected enough food to share with the Lebanon Senior Citizens Center as they had to close their doors for daily meals to seniors due to the coronavirus shutdown. They not only provide hot meals daily to senior members but also take food to shut-in and home bounds seniors. It certainly puts a hardship on many with the doors closed. Thanks to Lebanon Fire Department for helping unload and area volunteers for making home deliveries.

We would like to thank everyone that donated food for this community effort and especially Bates Ford for providing the vehicle. Wilson County Farm Bureau Ladies Leadership Group is involved in many community projects throughout the year. We would love to have any Wilson County Farm Bureau ladies join our group. We meet the first Thursday of each month at 4 p.m. at the Southside Park office. If you would like more information, you may contact Anita Hitt at 615-444-0614
