National Night Out was held Tuesday, Oct. 3 and once again Good Samaritan Ministries joined with local law enforcement to collect cans of tuna for the food pantry. “We so appreciate Chief Terry Nichols, Sheriff Vance Hill and Early Chief David Mercer for allowing us to be part of such an awesome community event,” Stephens said. “The tuna that was collected will help to feed families in all parts of Brown County. We are thankful that our local law officers are involved with helping so many in this area.” Thanks to our incredible community, more than 3,381 cans of tuna were donated to the food pantry through National Night Out 2017! Aided by volunteers from the HPU Social Work Club, Stephens said that they counted the donations Tuesday as they came in. “We really appreciate Sierra Spruill, club president and sponsor Dan Humenik for their work in helping us total the donations that came in, “Stephens said. “They helped us keep things organized when several officers showed up at the same time. They also built the tuna pyramids for our pictures.” The traveling Tuna Trophy will for the third straight year go the Yellow Rose Estates who collected 420 cans. United Supermarket was the corporate winner with 691 cans.
