It's this time of year that food pantries are running extremely low on supplies and are in need of donations.
And the Salvation Army got a donation Tuesday morning from an unlikely source.
Residents and staff members from the Good Samaritan Home helped load more than 600 food items intro a truck Tuesday that went to the Salvation Army food pantry.
The food drive was held for several weeks at Good Samaritan Home, and Judy Graham with the Good Samaritan Home says residents were eager to give back to the community.
"They want to make sure that they're able to give back to the community, and so it came about that a lot of them had brought up the needs for food items within the salvation army and within the Quincy community as a whole so they all thought it would be a good thing for us and our employees to do," Graham said.
Good Samaritan residents exceeded their original goal of donating 500 food items to the food pantry. If you would like to donate food to the Salvation Army food pantry, you can drop off non-perishable food items to the Salvation Army's Family Services facility at their North 6th Street facility.
