Food pantry volunteers honored

Jackson County commissioners will present a community service award to Charles and Betty Burgess, co-leaders of the St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry, at 9:30 a.m., Wednesday, Feb. 2, in the courthouse auditorium, 10 S. Oakdale Ave., Medford.

The couple have volunteered at the pantry for more than five years, working almost every day to provide bagged groceries to Jackson County's needy.

With the help of other volunteers, they supervise and coordinate the preparation and distribution of more than 12,000 bags of food to an estimated 17,000 adults and children every year.
