The Sidney Elks Lodge presented a check for $1000 and an impressive array of food items to the Richland County Food Bank last week. Food Bank member Candy Markwald expressed deep thanks for the gift and said they feel truly blessed by all the recent donations. The Savage School, the Sidney Middle School and St. Theresa's Church have all donated generously. The Richland County Food Bank is partnering with the Christmas Coalition to provide Christmas baskets for disabled and senior citizens on Monday, December 9 at Pella Lutheran Church. Please call 406-433-7421 to be put on the list.
