Quick Give this woman 50,000 lbs. of food so she’ll get off her roof

A Kennedale, Texas, woman is camping out on top of a church roof until 50,000 pounds of food donations are raised for local pantries.

Robin Evans — tent, sleeping bag and all — has been perched in the middle part of First United Methodist Church’s roof since early Friday morning.

The food raised will be donated to various food pantries across Tarrant County.

This is Evans’ third year taking to the roof. The first year, she went up in August. The past two years, she went up in June. Evans said she picks June because it is when children are out of school and she feels for those who rely on breakfast and lunch programs at school.

When people donate, they can pick which food pantry the food goes to or have it allocated to the kids’ backpack program.

“No, she’s not crazy; she is doing good job,” said Esta Dunham, Evans’ friend.
