When it?s not a holiday or a special occasion some have to go to new heights to encourage people to help others, and by new heights we are talking rooftops. For the last few years, Robin Evans has been doing a sit in /stand in on rooftops, to raise donations for area food pantries. This weekend, Robin is perched on the All Saints Lutheran Church in Arlington.

A nurse of 30 years Robin is used to helping others and wanted to do something to help the hungry. Once she explained what she wanted to do she got a few funny looks. Robin laughs ,?They were kind of like well good luck with that. We?ll support you. They think I?m a little crazy but you know its? all in fun.

And the timing for this food drive is great for food banks. Robin explains about schools letting out for the summer,? The food pantries needs are doubled because the children don?t have their backpack programs or free meals.?

Robin mentions how they?ve peaked people?s interest,? A couple of years ago we went viral, we are being followed by 8 countries now and pretty much all of the nation.
