REED CITY \u2014 General Mills\/Yoplait in Reed City has found yet another way to reach out and help others, this time collecting food items and donations for purchasing still more to give area food pantries a boost. According to Jan Ransom, staff assistant for Yoplait, \u201cIt\u2019s our way to give back to the community, and it\u2019s a win-win for everyone. We decided to expand the program a bit, and we\u2019re donating food items this time to the Baldwin, Tustin, and the Reed City food pantries.\u201d She said the response from employees was \u201cwonderful, and we were able to get additional items to put with what was coming in during the drive. Terry Gerber allowed us to use one of his trailers to pack with food during the actual drive and that was a big help.\u201d That certainly proved to be true the day the pickups were made in pouring down rain. Ransom and her crew didn\u2019t hesitate to get wet helping tote boxes from the trailer to waiting vehicles. \u201cThat\u2019s just all part of it,\u201d she said. She said the overall response was \u201camazing,\u201d and noted that it felt good to also reach outside the confines of one community and touch the lives where many employees and their families live as well. She said it is \u201ca giving back\u201d to those communities. \u201cBy doing this, we can show our appreciation for what these employees mean to all of us and this community, and help those in their home areas as well.\u201d Ransom added.
