Local teen and Miss Heart of the USA pageant competitor Emily Ervin recently saw success with an overnight food drive she organized. To benefit All Faiths Food Bank, Emily passed out paper bags in the Wellington Chase neighborhood and asked for non-perishable donations. The next day, the 13-year-old collected 65 bags filled with 375 items, weighing a total of 366 pounds. The Miss Heart of America pageant encourages community service, and Emily will compete for the national title next month in Orlando.
