In Honor of Diane Kuechler

CaptureThe Fredericksburg Area Food Bank would like to thank everyone at the Spotsylvania Volunteer Fire Department member and auxiliary family for allowing us to glimpse the generosity of spirit and love the community felt for Diane Kuechler.   To celebrate her life and efforts to give back to the community, the volunteers, auxiliary, friends and family of Diane collected funds to help feed the hungry.  Total donations raised from both online and collected donations totals 4,136.50.  This equates to 12, 400 meals provided back to the hungry of our community.  What a loving tribute to a life well shared.
