There’s something about this photo of the Dalton’s Food Pantry bus wrap that warms the heart. Twelve boys of all ages and one adult arranged in front of a mission bus; what’s it about?

Over the last two weeks, I traveled past a food pantry in the 3300 block of west 10th street nearly every day. I asked my wife about the pantry, and she informed me J.R. Dalton of J.R. Tire had started the pantry. After a little research I learned the pantry, founded in 2006, feeds 225 west side Indianapolis families every week. I was proud to find out TKO Graphix is a corporate sponsor. I also learned Mr. Dalton was not only called to this good work, but a lot more.
