One local church mobilized quickly recently after being notified by Sumner County Schools that some of its students were in need of non-perishable food items.

Members of Hendersonville First United Methodist Church, led by the church’s Women in Faith group, stuffed items like juice boxes, snacks, canned ravioli and cartons of milk into backpacks on Nov.17, and delivered the items to the Sumner County Board of Education.
