VIDEO: Local Farm Donates Food to VeteransPosted:
MONROEVILLE - The Wm. Schober Sons Orchards and Farm Market honors veterans every year with free food packages.
This year was the ninth year for the event which Owner John Hurff says is just their way of saying thank you for their freedom.
"This started in 2006 and it really grew," said Hurff. "And it's exploded over the last few years. We want to thank all our veterans for their service and we just thank you for the opportunity to be able to give back."
Hurff says that 2,250 veterans stopped by during the four-day event. All veterans received a basket of apples and produce donated by Schobers and other local farms.
