Trick or Eat food drive planned

It’s time for the annual “Trick or Eat” food drive. Youth from local churches will collect non-perishable food items from 5:45-7 p.m. Wednesday within the Fairmont community. Donations from this effort will be given to Heaven’s Table, St. John Vianney Hope Shop and the Salvation Army. If no one stops at your home and you would liketo donate, you can drop off food items either Thursday or Friday at St. John Vianney Church. All are asked to help support this cause if you’re able to do so.
