      Volunteers help feed people in need

      Members of Wesley United Methodist Church in Ishpeming and Mitchell United Methodist Church in Negaunee want to make sure food is available for people who need it.

      It is the fourth annual Project Feed a Neighbor, and Saturday, church members were up, bright and early, picking up collection bags.

      The bags were dropped off at houses around the city, and their hope is that every household fills up the bag with non-perishable food, paper or hygiene products.

      "We just believe that it's very, very important for churches in our community to be working in the community in outreach programs that benefit people that need them," said Richard Derby, project coordinator.

      All of the items donated will be given to the Salvation Army and St, Vincent de Paul stores in Ishpeming, Negaunee, and Republic.

      If you fill up a bag with food, your donation will be picked up Saturday, April 27 from 10 a.m. to noon.

      You are asked to leave the donation bag on the curb. Donations can also be dropped off at Wesley United Methodist Church in Ishpeming or Mitchell United Methodist Church in Negaunee.
