An annual food drive in Jersey County continues to grow. Got Faith began in 2010 and last year was supported by 37 churches. Now, 44 congregations in the county are on board this year and will help promote the collection for food pantries in the county today and tomorrow, along with a new contest between local grocery stores the afternoon of the third.
Got Faith coordinator Steve Pegram:
Shoppers at the Got Faith Yard Sale pay with canned goods, and can shop at the pavillion at the Jersey County Fairgrounds August 2nd and 3rd from 8am to 7pm each day. A car show is August 3rd from 9am to 2pm, and a music festival is Saturday from Noon to 8pm. Admission to all events will be a canned good, and those who attend the car show can vote for their favorite vehicle with canned goods.
