September 1, 2011 @ 8:00 am - September 30, 2011 @ 5:00 pm
Donations will serve dozens of hungry families
WAKULLA, Fla ““ Wakulla Chamber of Commerce is partnering with America’s Second Harvest of the Big Bend to bring Wakulla residents donated groceries through a food drive. The drive aims to collect 300 pounds of non-perishable goods by September 30.
Donors can drop off non-perishable items in bins at the Chamber of Commerce, located at 23 High Drive in Crawfordville. Common donations include high-quality, nutritious food such as canned meats, peanut butter, canned vegetables and fruits, canned soups, rice, pasta and whole grain cereal. Non-food items are also accepted, including new deodorants, soaps, toothpastes and toothbrushes, hair brushes and diapers.
The Chamber will deliver the donations to America’s Second Harvest of the Big Bend. The donations will then be sorted and distributed to partners in Wakulla County, putting food on the tables of countless families.
One local partner making an impact on the food drive is St. Mark’s Powder. The Crawfordville manufacturer is accepting donations through a generous company-wide campaign.
