The Plain City Food Pantry was one of several entities benefiting from the recent Community First Day, held July 26 at the Union County Fair.

United Way of Union County volunteers collected food items and school supply donations in exchange for admission to the fair.

More than three trucks full were collected, with 46 boxes of food and two boxes of school supplies total.

All food donations have been sorted and divided among the food pantries at The Salvation Army, Milford Center Food Pantry, Plain City Food Pantry and Richwood Emergency Assistance Program.

The school supplies will help kick-off United Way’s annual Stuff the Bus drive. In addition, more than $500 was collected that will go toward additional food and school supply purchases.
