More Blessed To Give Than Receive

That seems to be the motto of many members of the Bayview Community Council and BABS, which stands for Bayview, Athol,Belmont. These are a group of ladies that spend much of their time doing things for others.

Last summer's gigantic yard sale sponsored by both groups, plus raffles, the traditional lemonade stand at the Bayview daze street fair, 50/50 raffles, Octoberfest, are all fund raisers. These funds are always used for charitable purposes. Today, found BCC Treasurer, Bob Moore, presenting a check to the ABC Food Bank, which covers Athol,Bayview, Careywood, and other surrounding areas.

Many people donate food and money during the fall and winter holiday season, but with logging and the mills shut down, plus layoffs in other businesses, more people are in need than ever before. The food bank is located in the Athol community Center. The food bank's phone number is 683-2101. Donations may be dropped off at the community Center, or mailed to ABC Food Bank, P.O. box 416, Athol, ID 83801
