Dick Latson of Commerce Community Cares and Isabel Davis of the Commerce Food Pantry comment on the annual fund raising campaign of Commerce Community Cares, which benefits 13 Commerce organizations, including the Food Pantry.  Isabel says the Commerce Food Pantry serves about 150 people per week.  She says the organization will now receive food supplies from the North Texas Food Bank, based in Dallas, for only the cost of delivery.  Commerce Community Cares has received pledges amounting to about 80 percent of its $27,500 goal.  Its campaign continues until October.
