The Congregational Community Action Project (C-Cap) of Front Royal Warren County was just given a new storage facility.

The donation of the new location on Kendrick Lane is from the Front Royal Warren County Economic Development Authority (EDA).

This came just in time to help C-Cap store the 16,000 pounds of food you donated in our Camping for Hunger campaign last month.

We spoke with Executive Director of C-Cap Joanne Koszyk about this donation in our latest news maker.

The good news is brought to you by The Town of Front Royal.

Joanne and all of C-Cap are very excited to have a new place to store their non perishable food supplies.

Joanne tells us what this means for C-Cap and the distribution of items to those in need.

She also talks about future distribution efforts by C-Cap.
