Pentwater Service Club raises $1,350 for food bank.

PENTWATER — Members and friends of the Pentwater Service Club raised $1,350 in cash and a dozen baskets of food for the Pentwater Food Bank located at First Baptist Church.  

Now in its second year, contributions were up more than 25 percent from a year ago when the members decided to make it an annual fundraising event.  

“This has been a particularly difficult year for area residents with widespread unemployment and COVID related closures, so we knew we had to do something,” said Carrie Roberts, PSC member who managed the successful food drive for the club.

Pentwater is located in the second poorest county in the state where jobs can be seasonal and often don’t pay like those in larger communities, said Roberts. “The people we are trying to help often have low-paying jobs and are essential workers that just need a little help to keep them going during hard times.”

The PSC plans to involve other community organizations in 2022 and will go “all in” to break another record for the amount of money and food collected.
