‘We’re really in need.’

As I was walking out of the Resource Distribution Council, a food bank that serves 9,500 people each month, executive director Randy McElliott wasn’t too proud to appeal to The News Tribune’s readers for help.

“We’re in need,” he said after stopping me on my way to the parking lot. “We’re really in need. We’re going to need help to keep it going.”

I wish I had my recorder going at that time because it’s tough to describe the sound in his voice. It wasn’t desperation, but it was close.
