Fight Hunger, Feed Hope – Palmer Food Bank September 24th, 2012
On Monday, October 1st, local groups and merchants will start accepting non-perishable foods for a food drive benefiting the Palmer Food Bank which, in turn, helps those in need in our community. This drive ends on Saturday, October 13th, culminating in an afternoon and evening of art, music, and fun and a chance to vote on your favorite display of donated items as part of Second Saturday.
According to the organizers, the Palmer Food Bank is running very low on food right now and donations have dropped tremendously. This limits what can be given away to families looking for some help. With several displaced
families due to local flooding, this food drive will be a huge help and is needed now more than ever.
The goal is for each group/business to collect 200 cans or more!
After the end of the drive, pickup of donated items will be Monday-Thursday the following week.
Please feel free to call for any questions and a big THANKS for joining us in this worthy cause!
