The Flower Patch gives back to the community

When the economy goes down, the number of people seeking help from food banks goes up. Recently, The Flower Patch in Greenville found a way to give back to the community. Over the past two months, a food drive was held to benefit Community Action Partnership in Darke County.

The Flower Patch offered free delivery in exchange for a donation of food items and then matched all food donations with household items. The Flower Patch thanks all the customers who helped make this food drive a success.

Community Action Partnership can be contacted at 937-548-8143. The Food Bank is available to persons in need from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Income eligible customers may receive an emergency food box containing a five-day supply of food. The nonperishable food items are collected locally through food drives from churches, Boy Scouts, the National Guard, schools, and local businesses.
