NMRA collects for Marion Food Pantry

November 21, 2018

The North Michigan Riders Association Motorcycle Club recently held their annual food drive to help support the Marion Food Pantry. During the first week of firearms deer season, members and locals teamed up to help fill a trailer with non-perishable food items located in the Valuland parking lot. Club members George Major, Jeff Chamberlain, Don Corner, Tom Moore, and Eddie Miller, along with a host of others helped contribute to this year’s event being a success.

“It feels awesome to see people helping each other out,” Moore said. “Really puts perspective on our little town.”

The club has helped support the food pantry for many years; this year, the club was able to collect several hundred pounds of food: approximately 35 to 40 flats of canned goods, along with pastas, soups, cereals, and other non-perishable food items.
The club has also raised several hundred dollars for the food pantry each year. During this year’s event, one individual donated a hundred dollars, telling the members: “He had gotten help in the past, and now was in a position to give some help.”
