Clark County Students Help Feed Hungry Families

Back in 2008 Clark County Community Foundation (CCCF) made a $5,838 grant to the Southwest Arkansas Food Bank in Arkadelphia.  When CCCF Executive Director Ginger Overturf told local board members the food bank was in dire need of volunteers in 2010, they decided to give more than money.

“We unloaded trucks and helped out,” said CCCF Board Member Damon Daniels, owner of Cowboy Dispatch in Amity.  “I realized the food bank needed even more help and contacted the Center Point School District to see what we could do.”  

As a school board member, Daniels was able to coordinate small groups of student volunteers for the food bank.  He and brothers Brock and Jarrod Henthorn soon spent another day working in the warehouse. “It touched their lives and made them realize that a lot of people are in need of hunger relief,” he said.

Daniels hopes other school districts will follow suit to provide all the volunteer labor the food bank needs.  “Students can’t learn if they don’t have enough to eat.  It is all tied back to feeding families.”
