Food train huge success

Trinity Lutheran Church’s eighth annual “Climb Aboard the Food Train” to benefit Westbrook Food Pantry collected more than $10,000 and 90 boxes of food.

An anonymous donor matched the entire monetary donations. The total also includes donations made at a Dusty Divas concert at the church.

“Many of our elderly, children, disabled, unemployed and underemployed people in the community come to the pantry on a regular basis in order to have enough to eat,” the church said in a press release.

Donation jars were placed in businesses and churches throughout the city.
