Georgia Military College National Honor Society Students Donate 1,200 Items to Chard Wray Food Pantry

(Milledgeville, GA) November 5, 2003 – Members of the National Honor Society at Georgia Military College High School recently donated 1,200 items to the Chard Wray Food Pantry at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church in Milledgeville, Georgia. The service project, organized by GMC High School teachers, MAJ Pam Grant (National Honor Society sponsor), and MAJ Ann Bertoli, has been a school-wide Make A Difference Day initiative for four years.

St. Stephen’s Food Pantry, which opened in 1990, is named in memory of Chard Wray, a 1984 graduate of GMC high school. COL Bill Mills, USA (Ret.), director of the pantry, said, “We are the largest food pantry in Baldwin County, and we rely on donations from foundations and the generosity of Georgia Military College, John Milledge Academy, and the parishioners, not only at St. Stephen’s, but several other churches in the community.” COL Mills said in the month of October alone, the pantry served 55 families.
