City National Bank recently donated $1500 to the Metropolis Rotary Club to be used for food for the community. The Rotary will use the money to buy groceries and place the items in small shelters located at the corner of Girard and Sixth streets in Metropolis; the Brookport library; and at First Christian Church on Crockett Street in Brookport. CNB employees Jacob Pegram (left) and Lisa Parmer make the presentation to Rotary President Tom Reed. Rotary adopted the three food shelters as a 2020 community project. “When you take it on a weekly basis, amazing how quickly they can empty,” Reed said. Monetary donations for the project are accepted at Legence Bank with checks made payable to the Metropolis Rotary Club with Food Shelters in the memo line. The club is also accepting non-perishable food donations, which can be dropped off at Reed Electric, 201 W. 10th St., Metropolis, or arrange for pick up by contacting Reed at 524-7545.
