The Perkins County community stepped up in a big way in the past few months and helped the Perkins County
Hatch’s Super Foods and Perkins County Health Services coordinated an effort to provide Christmas dinner for area families in need. Hatch’s donated a gallon of milk to each meal, and PCHS donated a ham to each meal. Donations from the public exceeded previous years and totaled over $2400. The 23 meals cost $505.54 and a $25 gift card was added to each box with a cost of $575.00. This left a credit of over $1400 that was donated to the Perkins County food pantry. Pictured assembling the meals are PCHS and Hatch’s employees, (l-r) Olga Dunn, Tona Heinemann, Lynlea Green, Valerie Hochstein, Jacque Schmer, Ben Polson, Connie Pofahl, Faye Johnson and Katelyn Coman.
“We know people are concerned, as are we,” said Phillips County Undersheriff J.R. Myers.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, the upcoming session of the Nebraska Legislature will be a case of deja vu all over again.
Donors to the Perkins County Community Foundation Fund can take a victory lap.
