To The Editor: Fill the Truck!



I am looking for some publicity on our FILL THE TRUCK event. I am the chair for La Paz County Young Farmers and Ranchers program and we are teaming up with Parker Motor Company to do a food drive for our local food banks. It’s simple. There is a truck parked outside Parker Motor Co with a Banner on it that says FILL THE TRUCK. We are encouraging the people of our community to drop off non-perishable donations in the bed of that F-150. Our goal is to fill the bed of that truck! All donation will stay local!!! If you are able to help it is greatly appreciated! Please help us get the word out.

Thank you,
Kristen Nelson
