For the “Community Food Drive,” Tom Meredith made a promise to wear shorts if someone would donate $500 to the Fish Food Pantry. Office Specialists came through with the donation and we were so happy to help! Tom bared his legs for charity on December 13 at Hi-Lo Supermarket in Galesburg. Thank you Tom and we had a great time helping our community. It was wonderful to see a great turnout for such a wonderful cause!
