One Sheridan food bank just received a financial boost to help transport large quantities of donated food.

Earlier this week The Food Group received a $25,000 donation from the Ramaco Foundation, which is the charitable arm of Ramaco Resources Incorporated.

A second $25,000 donation will be made sometime next year.

While The Food Group is a non-profit organization, financial donations and contributions are needed from time to time for things such as gas to help get the donated food from one place to their warehouse on Broadway Street. 

Keri McMeans is the executive director of The Food Group.

She says this time of year is one of those times, because schools are about to start their winter breaks, and more deliveries may need to be made, and/or more than the normal amount food will need to be given out, to accommodate those who won’t be able to access their usual school pantry during the break.

“In comparison to what we normally send out, we do try to send out robust food bags and food baskets during the holidays. With schools being on holiday break and less access to food during the school day, oftentimes families are in a more of a need at home, and so we try to send out more food, just to accommodate for those times that kids are not in school.”

Ramaco Resources Incorporated is an operator and developer of high-quality, low-cost metallurgical coal in West Virginia, Virginia and Pennsylvania.

The company has an operational office in Sheridan and one mine nearby that is not yet in production.
