Carole Hall stopped by the Newport Food Pantry the other day and presented a check to Kathy Myers, who runs the Newport Food Pantry. Carol owns Paper Mermaids, a scrapbooking, stamping and craft supply store uphill from the Newport Cafe. Carol was passing along some of the proceeds her store enjoyed from their Facebook Fan promotion campaign held in January. Carol and her husband/County County Commissioner Bill Hall have been tireless supporters of outreach and support services for the county’s poor, mental health challenged and homeless populations.
Upon receiving the check, Myers she and everyone connected with the Newport Food Pantry appreciates the many businesses, like Paper Mermaids, that help in the fight against serious hunger in the Newport area.
