MT. VERNON — —

Volunteers gathered Thursday afternoon at the Park Avenue Baptist Church parsonage building to pack bags for the Nutrition on Weekends program. NOW provides food for students on long holiday weekends when school lunches and breakfasts are not available. The packing was to get ready for the three-day weekend coming up for President's Day. NOW is a partnership between the United Way of South Central Illinois, District 80 and the Park Avenue Food Pantry.
