Dick Derby, organizer of the Project Ishpeming Food Pantry, called in with an update on the effort. He talked about the distribution of 4000 bags earlier this week in the Ishpeming and west Ishpeming areas. The second half of the effort happens tomorrow. Starting at 10-am, volunteers will be traversing the streets, picking up the bags, which will be filled by community members with non-perishable food items, paper products and toiletries.
Those items will then be taken to the Ishpeming Salvation Army and the Ishpeming St. Vincent DePaul and will be split between the two agencies for distribution for the needy in the community.
