The Concerned Citizens of Russellville/Logan County remain active as the leadership continues to find more ways to serve those in need throughout the county. Going on now are programs involving food distribution, music and educational improvements.

Executive Director Dorris Vick reports the organization has received food and beverage from Feed the Children in Oklahoma equaling two 53-foot trailers loaded with food within a month, thanks to GT Freight in Auburn.

"We are now trying to distribute the food to food banks in Logan County," Vick says. "There is no reason for anyone to be hungry. We are also distributing food at the KP Hall. We have been able to get water to most of our fire fighters in Logan County. If we have missed any and they are in need, they can pick up the items at the KP Hall. We are also giving out backpacks with food in them to those in our After-School Tutorial Program."

Among agencies who have received food are Agape, Sheep Gate Ministries, Good Samaritan, New Life Church of Auburn, Muddy River Baptist Church, the Adult Learning Center, Auburn Baptist Church's Food Pantry, and senior centers in Russellville, Adairville and Auburn.
Any food bank that needs food can contact Vick at 725-8721.

MUSICAL PROGRAM sponsored by the Concerned Citizens on Saturday, Oct. 26 at the KP Hall will serve as a fund raiser for the tutorial program, the food bank and other activities to benefit the community,

"We are asking for male choruses or choirs to help with this event," Vick said. "A group has been formed called Men Taking Our Streets Back. For information on that, contact Minister Domitrie Martin at 1-270-221-0037. Anyone who would like to make a donation can send it to P.O. Box 1351, Russellville 42276."

The After-School tutorial Program is offered by Concerned Citizens for grades 1-11 from 5-6:30 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Free transportation is available.
