Food pantry gains from local losers PDF Print E-mail

Thanks to efforts and personal goals of area dieters, the Perkins County Food Pantry has gained.
Adams Bank and Trust hosted a “Biggest Loser Contest” from April 15 through June 24. There were 35 participants who lost 273.6 pounds in that 10-week period with that same dollar figure in groceries being donated to the food pantry by the bank.
The contest’s biggest loser was Matthew Chandler-Smith, followed by Marcia Frerichs, Brenda Yancy and Sylvia Dudo. Each was given $20 in Chamber Greenbacks courtesy of Adams Bank and Trust, and Image Total Fitness gave each a one-month free membership.  
Organizing the event was Melanie Carman, retail branch manager of Adams Bank and Trust in Grant/Madrid.
