  • Food distribution system’s goal remains the same under new management

    The people who come to the Henry County Help Center need “that little bit of extra help” to make food last the entire month, said James Dills, the director. He and wife Olivia direct volunteers, sign up new families and coordinate with Dare to Care with the goal of filling enough boxes with food.
    But the help center couldn’t exist without the volunteers.
    “They’re family,” James said. “You can’t really say one person is in charge – it’s a team.”
    For example, Eagle Scouts tackle community projects at the help center, such as building the shelves for box prep and storage.

    The Hedges family took in the dog as they moved from Maine to Evansville, Ind. Stomper has become an integral part of the Hedges clan.
