HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. — Eight Food Lion employees spent Tuesday afternoon unloading 25,000 pounds of food into the Hearts & Hands Food Pantry in Huntersville. The volunteers were working hard, hardly minding the workload.
It was the largest donation ever given to the pantry, which opened last fall.
"We want to make sure we are providing fresh products to our families," said Food Lion volunteer Benny Smith. "And then later we are going to provide some refrigeration equipment."
