First Baptist Church has donated 3,800 nonperishable food items to the Warren County Emergency Food Bank.“We really appreciate this donation,” said Warren County Emergency Food Bank president Lester Cowell. “It helps us out until the McMinnville Postal Service holds its annual Stamp Out Hunger food drive over Mother’s Day weekend. We appreciate the community’s support in eliminating hunger and encouraging volunteerism.”According to First Baptist Church member Preston Greer, the food was collected during the church’s Souper Bowl food drive.“We have a church-wide food collection and a Sunday School Class competition,” said Greer.
