Community to Provide Home for Founder of Sumner County Food Bank

Brother James Gill is 72 years oldand has never owned his own home.  As the founder of the Sumner County Food Bank, he used $34,000 of his savings to keep the struggling food bank open early on. Gill and his wife, Barbara, have been married for 52 years. While they purchased property in the area, they do not have the money or resources needed to build their own home. Many local businesses have rallied around the Gills to make this dream of home ownership come true. “Together with our trade partners, it is our desire to help him build his first home so we may thank him for all of the support and hard work he has contributed to our community,” said Bob Goodall, President/Owner of Goodall Homes. The ground-breaking is scheduled for Fri June 27 at noon. To make a donation, mail a check to Liberty Baptist Church, 1047 South Water Drive, Gallatin, TN 37066, payable to “James Gill New Home Fund.” To volunteer during the building process, contact Dan Ruffin at 615-207-5220 or idruffin@hotmail.com. About the Sumner County Food Bank Sumner County Food Bank has no paid employees. Every dollar donated goes 100% to the purchase of food, building cost, and trucking expenses. Through the partnership with Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee, approximately 60% of the food product is purchased at a reduced rate from Second Harvest. With every dollar donated, we are able to purchase approximately 300% of what a donor is able to purchase in a retail grocery store. Sumner County Food Bank serves the community every third Thursday of the month. The doors open at 9AM and close when all have been served or the food is gone.
