The Patrick County Food Bank received a donation in memory of Douglas Lee Owens. Douglas was killed earlier this year in a motorcycle accident. He was very proud of his community. His family held a fundraiser, with the support of Rosa, her family, and the team at Tony’s Pizza. The donations from this fundraiser were split between the Food Bank and Patrick County Schools’ Welding Program.
Rhonda Pruitt, director of the Food Bank, is pictured receiving the donation from Douglas’ brother Christian Owens. Also pictured are Jessica Owens, Douglas’ mother, Hanna Owens, Douglas’ sister, Hannah Howard and Rosaria Palumbo from Tony’s.
Pruitt said the Food Bank is sincerely thankful for the donation. She added, “Douglas was a fine young man, and he will be missed.”
