  • Thirty area food pantries received truckloads of canned foods and non-perishable items over the holiday season thanks to Sakelaris Ford Lincoln of Rolla.
    "We met our goal of 62 trucks," said Luc Burns who coordinated this year's event for the dealership.
    He added that two or three more trucks went out to some needy families after the event had ended in December.
    This year marked the 23rd year that the dealership has encouraged area residents and businesses to donate.
    Burns said that there was a big push to meet the goal during the last week of the campaign thanks to a number of local banks and individuals who came through with some large donations.
    In 2012, the food drive set an all-time record of collecting 66 truckloads of canned goods.
