Canned Food Drive, Nov. 8


November 2, 2017

WAITSBURG – The LEOs and Lions clubs will once again team up for their annual canned food drive to support the Waitsburg Resource Center. Vehicles will canvass the town, picking up food donations between 7-8 p.m. on Wed., Nov. 8.

In this friendly competition between high school classes, the town is divided into quadrants, one for each class. Lions club members with pickups volunteer to drive students and carry canned goods. At the end of the hour, the class that brings in the most food (by weight) wins.

Those who wish to support the drive can donate perishable items (with current expiration dates). Those who cannot be home are asked to leave bagged items by the front door of their home with the porch light on.

“It is a group effort, but so worth it! Last year we raised over 100 pounds of food and supplies and we hope to double that this year. All items find homes with those in need in our own community,” said LEOs advisor Gabe Keifel.
