More than 40 churches in Jersey County are coming together to support the Got Faith canned food drive next month.  Along with the 4th annual yard sale food drive, there will be a car show, a Christian music festival and a grocery cart race the weekend of August 2nd and 3rd at the Jersey County Fairgrounds.  All the food collected will go to stock the food pantries in Jersey County.

Got Faith Organizer Steve Pegram says he's just been amazed by the amount of support from the community:

New this year will be a shopping cart race between the grocery providers in Jerseyville, and that takes place on August 3rd at 3pm at the Fairgrounds.  Shoppers at the Got Faith Yard Sale pay with canned goods, and can shop at the pavilion at the Jersey County Fairgrounds August 2nd and 3rd from 8am to 7pm each day.  The car show is August 3rd from 9am to 2pm, and the music festival is Saturday from Noon to 8pm.
