The Messenger. 11.20.08 Persnickety’s Consignment Shop, located between Troy Pharmacy and Cash Express in Troy, will be collecting food Friday and Saturday for donation to Reelfoot Rural Ministries. That agency will pick up the canned goods and use them to assist local families who are facing hunger during the holidays and the winter months. A spokesman for RRM says their food donations are well below the amount usually provided and they are in need of assistance. Customers who donate five cans of food will receive a 10 percent discount on their total purchase Friday and Saturday. The food collection will be in progress from 9:30 a.m.-6 p.m. Friday and 9:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday and the discount offer will only be good at the time the donation is made at the store.
