December 23--  It's down to the holiday homestretch at the Salvation Army in Vidalia this year and Director Sandy Roberts is overcome with gratitude.  Their food pantry is full and there seems to be enough toys to go around.{mosimage}

"It's awesome. Our pantry is running over.  The food drive Rotary did for us is awesome.  With the economy like it is, we were worried.  We had twice the number of people signed up, but this community has really rallied.  People have been donating and have been great helping people less fortunate, I really want to thank everybody." she says.

Charles Gillis helped organize the Rotary Club food drive which distributed thousands of empty grocery bags to readers of the Advance newspaper.  "We are so pleased with how that has turned out.  We actually have more to take down there today.  It's not just a one-week deal. It can go on throughout the year because they really need it.  We're thankful to everyone who contributed," he said.
