Area groups fill Emergency Aid’s pantry

The Bureau of Reclamation and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints helped refill the food pantry at Emergency Aid, 600 Nevada Highway, with two separate food drives in September.

The bureau donated nearly 4,500 pounds of mostly canned food to the local food pantry Sept. 10. Terry Fulp, director of the Bureau of Reclamation’s Lower Colorado Region, represented presented the donation, which was part of an annual food drive that included bureau employees at the local office and Hoover Dam.

The food drive came through the Regional and Lower Colorado Dams Offices’ Feds Feed Families program, a month-long, regionwide campaign to collect nonperishable food and beverage items for Emergency Aid and other community organizations throughout the region.

“It was rewarding to see the amount of food on the shelves,” said Michael Bernardo, Regional Office Reclamation Employees Association president who coordinated the Feds Feed Families campaign.

On Saturday, Sept. 14, members of the local Mormon churches collected nearly 600 plastic bags of goods, including diapers, baby food, hot and cold cereal, canned fruits and vegetables, pasta, as well as canned meats, vegetables, fruits and soups.

“Donations to Emergency Aid allow the organization to continue to feed Boulder City families in need,” a statement from the church said.
