Friday, Newton Manufacturing Company employees Mindy Beaderstadt, left, and Bev Taber, right, presented more than 1,100 non-perishable food items, paper goods and baby needs to Salvation Army Captain Jeff Carter. Newton Manufacturing heard the food pantry was running low on select items and set a goal to donate 1,000 items to aid Jasper County families. Carter said the food pantry offers assistance to more than 450 families per month.
