Community donates food for United Way Day of Action

Community members came through for a successful food drive coordinated by the city of Tecumseh and others on Friday, Sept. 20. The event, which featured a drive-through donation process at the Tecumseh Fire Dept. Building, was part of Lenawee United Way’s Day of Action. Donations of canned and dry goods were sought to benefit the Tecumseh Service Club and God’s Bread Basket to help local families in need.“We collected about a pick-up truck full,” said Tecumseh City Manager Kevin Welch, who took part in the activity, along with at least five other volunteers, including Fire Chief Joe Tuckey and his wife, Sherri.A concurrent event at the Tecumseh Center for the Arts generated approximately 20 bags of groceries as well.The Kiwanis Club of Tecumseh also donated 100 boxes of cereal to the Tecumseh Service Club.“Everybody was pretty happy with what we were able to do,” said Welch about the one-day event. The Lenawee United Way Day of Action activities kicked off the agency’s annual fundraising campaign.
