In her quarterly report to the Crosslines Board, MaLinda King, director of Crosslines, announced that Curves in Monett had donated a total of 3,000 pounds of food, diapers and laundry detergent. It took three truckloads to transfer the items from Curves to Crosslines.
Not only will the donations assist local families but those impacted by the May 22 Joplin tornado that displaced several families to this area.
King also reported the passing of Lonnie Dunn, the former president of the Crosslines Board.
In other news, King said that summer yard sales and house cleaning have kept volunteers busy sorting items in recent weeks.
King introduced the new assistant director, Shelia Alexander, to the board. She and her husband, Bill, are originally from North Carolina.
Other new faces at Crosslines include Trent Intessimone and Kevin Layton, who replace vacancies left by James Glover and Ronnie King.
In the past quarter, Crosslines has assisted 446 families through its pantry, and by providing food vouchers, help with utility and fuel bills, dental services, clothing, adult and child diapers and wipes, motel rooms, laundry and dish soap, cleaning supplies, prescriptions, medical equipment, eyeglasses, infant and toddler car seats, doctor visits, uniforms and steel-toed boots.
