A press release from SYP says members were able to collect 540 pounds of non-perishable food, 34 blankets and 34 packages of diapers through the 2-day food drive which was hosted November 13 - 14 at the Sedalia Walmart store.

SYP members also collected $397.70 in monetary donations to donate to Open Door.

SYP Community Engagement Chair Kevin Wade said, "We’re glad our fourth annual Fall Food Drive was a success so we could help local families in need during the holiday season, and it was great to donate more money than last year’s drive."
