Volunteers at the Key Peninsula Bischoff FISH Food Bank are rallying to support one of their own.
Robert Evans, known around the food bank as “Bo,” lost his home in a house fire. He has six children, all of whom made it out of the house.
Evans is retired from the military, said Kimberly Miller, a fellow volunteer. He spends time every Saturday at the food bank. He and his wife have six children — five girls and a 2-year-old boy, Miller said.
To help Evans with expenses, the volunteers will hold a fundraiser at the Key Peninsula Lutheran Church on Feb. 16.
The $5 dinner will feature spaghetti, a drink, salad and garlic bread. It will be held from 3 to 5 p.m. at the church, 4213 Lackey Road KPN, Lakebay.Reporter Karen Miller can be reached at 253-358-4155 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow her on Twitter, @gateway_karen.
