On Nov. 17, the Saukville Community Food Pantry provided 90 Thanksgiving meal boxes to residents of Ozaukee County.
The effort was accomplished in large part due to the generosity of Mike and Jim Schmit from the Schmit Bros. auto dealership, according to Mark Gierach, Saukville Community Food Pantry executive director.
Schmit Bros. donated 76 turkeys toward the cause and also donated funds from their “Go Further With Ford” night on Nov. 15, Gierach said. In addition, their service department is also collecting food items for the food pantry.
"In recognition of Schmit Bros. having gone the extra mile in reaching out to the surrounding community to help those in need, the Board of the Saukville Food Pantry wishes to thank them for their generosity," Gierach said in a press release.
