Several boxes of non-perishable food items were collected by the Shelbyville Lions Club and employees of Duck River Electric Membership Corp. and donated to Good Samaritan for their food pantry.

Katie Guthrie, President of the Lions Club, would like to issue a challenge to other businesses and civic organizations to have their own food drive to help fill the shelves of local food pantries this holiday season.

"Lions Club International statistics state that every five seconds somewhere around the world a child dies from problems related to hunger," Guthrie said. "No child in the Unites States should be going to bed or to school hungry."
