April 12, 1999

sThe three Martin's Food Markets in Hagerstown recently collected nearly 12 tons of nonperishable food items to benefit Food Resources Inc.

The three-week annual fund drive also produced a grand prize winner in the Basketball Shoot-Out competition - Kenzie Bowen of Smithsburg.

Food Resources Inc. operates a 10,000-square-foot warehouse and provides services to 61 charities and churches throughout the region who have feeding programs for the needy.

Last year in Washington County, the number of people who received food from Food Resources increased by 40 percent over the previous year.
