Two Iowa Realty brokers from Perry presented a donation of $1,000 Tuesday to the Perry Area Food Pantry.
Barry Bengston of Perry and Bill Clark of Perry, both longtime associate brokers of Iowa Realty, joined Perry Food Pantry Site Director Lou Hoger at the 3000 Willis Ave. pantry to present the funds.
“We understand the needs that many families are facing during this uncertain time,” Bengston said. “We hope our donation will aid the Perry Area Food Pantry with their efforts in serving our community.”
Clark said the Perry Food Pantry “provides a vital service to the Perry area. We’re glad to join the pantry’s many other donors in supporting their charitable efforts.”
Hoger gratefully accepted the Iowa Realty donation, noting that “local needs today are unprecedented. We’re serving more than twice as many people each month as this time last year.”
The Perry Area Food Pantry is located at 3000 Willis Ave. and is open Tuesday from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and Thursdays from 1-3:30 p.m.
