LAFOLLETTE, TN (WLAF) – The annual food drives have become as synonymous with Terry’s Pharmacy as the green color in its logo.   This latest effort netted more than a ton of food; 2,196 pounds to be exact, according to Justin Wilson with Terry’s Pharmacy.

Beginning weeks ago, Terry’s patients began bringing food items and/or monetary donations.  Rissa Pryse, owner of Terry’s Pharmacy, matched what the patients donated.

Pryse said, “First Volunteer Bank was very instrumental in the success of this food drive.”  She’s quick to express thanks to all those who donated and to Food City and the two Terry’s Pharmacies.

“Once again, the people of Campbell County pulled through for those in need.  Many of those who made donations have also been in need at one time or another and understand that side,” said Pryse.

The food was donated to Food Life Services.  Jim Holtslag with FLS said, “This food will be distributed over the next week or so.”  He estimates that this latest Terry’s Pharmacy food drive will feed more than 200 families.  (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 11/27/2019-6AM)
