Posted by Debra Worley - email

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Rex and Sons R.V. company delivered hundreds of pounds of pantry items to the Good Shepherd Center Friday morning.

The company had been collecting non-perishable food items over the past several weeks as part of their "Half-way to Thanksgiving" food drive.

Rex and Sons collected over 1,300 pounds of various food and drinks in one of their motorhomes.

The Creech sons want to thank the community for their support.

"It's been a very successful mission," said Travis Creech. "We really appreciate all of the donations that the community has brought. We filled this motor home up - it's awesome."

The Creech sons say they will turn this food drive into an annual event.
