Where do you volunteer and what do you do there?: The Dargan Food Bank which is housed in the Dargan Ruritan Building (formerly the Dargan School). Open by appointment only.

What prompted you to begin volunteering? A lady from the Community Action Council contacted the Dargan Ruritan Club in the summer of 1983 to establish a place where the needy could get food that was donated by individuals, clubs and churches.

Peggy and three others volunteered initially. Now it is Peggy and a new volunteer, Deborah Thompson.

Your biggest reward as a volunteer? "I feel like I'm there for the needy. God wants us to look out for each other."
