Members of the Madonna Interact Club recently visited the Community Bread Basket at 3501 West St., Weirton, where they learned how the need for food has increased just in the past year. Community Bread Basket provides food in Brooke and Hancock counties for nearly 300 people on a monthly basis. “We used to serve 80 to 100 people monthly, but now we are nearer 300 each month,” said Tara Sheperd, program administrator for Community Bread Basket. Anyone or any group interested in assisting may call (304) 748-7595 to volunteer. Club members on hand were, front, from left, Tomi Pavan and Casey Recrosio; and back, faculty adviser Brenda Charetier, Olivia Mogan, Austin Green, Michael Plesa, Chase Smith, Jimmy DeMarco and Jason Heckathorn.
