GREENFIELD — The idea was to draw attention to dozens of dull-looking donation barrels for the Hancock County Food Pantry and make them more appealing to the eye.
The old, brown barrels, sitting at various spots in the county, are used as collection spots for non-perishable food items for the pantry, but they were in need of a makeover.
National Art Honor Society students from New Palestine High School volunteered their artistic skills to give the bland food bins a brighter, more positive look.
“I just thought they needed to be prettied up,” Hancock County Food Pantry volunteer Liz Rusche said. “They were all kind of brown with a few stickers on them, and I thought they needed a little help.”
