November Food Drive to Help North Area Families
The Backpacks for Kids and HELP programs in Lincoln City are asking for community support of their November Food Drive. Donations will assist local families when school is closed through the Thanksgiving holiday week.
Collected food items will be sent home with students the week before Thanksgiving. Any additional food donations will be available for families attending the HELP Center Family Night on Monday, Nov. 25, with pizza and fun activities from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Food donations may be dropped off at the following Lincoln City locations: HELP Center at Taft Elementary School, Taft High School, Oceanlake Elementary School, Bank of America, and US Bank. Other drop-off locations include the Gleneden Beach post office and all Backpack Program sites. The deadline for donations is Monday, Nov. 25, at the HELP Center; and Tuesday, Nov. 19, at all other locations.
Suggested donations include canned meats, milk, tuna, soup, fruits and vegetables; pancake, cake, cookie, and brownie mixes; peanut butter, fruit cups, cereal, and juices, to name a few of the non-perishable items.
