Saturday, August 31, was the "Fill the Boot" fundraiser for the Copperopolis Community Food Pantry. This fundraiser is held twice a year, on the Memorial Day weekend and Labor day weekend. Organized by the Copper Volunteer Firefighters and staffed by our firemen, local VFW members and Food Pantry volunteers, these events raise the lion's share of funds which support the pantry throughout the year. We thank all our volunteers and of course the members of our community and the visitors who gave so generously to make this event a success.
Shirley Wunder recognized for her charitable efforts At the 9-11-13 Lions Club meeting local resident and community servant Shirley Wunder was recognized and honored for her unending support and help for those displaced by the RIM fire. Shirley volunteered countless hours at the Sonora Evacuation shelter serving meals and helping in anyway that was needed.

Thank you Shirley for your care and love of your community and the people in it..

Shirley Wunder recognized for her charitable efforts
We had a record-breaking month! 60 households with 172 individuals were served. This is a record for a non-holiday month! I think the new location is a success. It's in a highly visible area and convenient for many of the families we serve.
