Democratic Women’s Club makes donation

The members of Washington County Democrats Women’s Club have chosen Gospel Mission Food Bank as the beneficiary of fifty pounds of food donation and $30 cash.

The dedication shown to citizens of Marietta, Ohio, by the Waites and all the Gospel Mission staff and volunteers is appreciated. Gospel Mission Food Bank is located on Lancaster Street in Marietta’s West Side.

Washington County Democratic Women’s Club meets every month and will be collecting shelf-stable food and household products, and donating to Gospel Mission on a regular basis. Over the past four months they have delivered three food and cash donations, totalling about 150 pounds of food and about $100 cash.

The Democratic Women is a small group of dedicated citizens who meet the last Thursday of every month for lunch, hold an informational meeting, support Democratic candidates for office in Washington County, and to work on projects for the betterment of life in Washington County. New members are welcome.

The next meeting will be held Sept. 26 and include an 11:30 a.m. luncheon and noon meeting at the VFW on Pike Street in Marietta.
