The financial strains of the pandemic have hit some families harder than others.
Local food pantries have been critical in filling the gap … putting food on the table when the family budget just won’t stretch far enough. But now those pantries need help.
On June 23rd and 24th … Gather-up your non-perishable food items and go to 13 ON YOUR SIDE for their Drive-Thru Dash!
It’s a two-day, drive-thru event to collect food for the Heart of West Michigan United Way’s Summer Stock Up.
The station is at 645 3 Mile Northwest, just east of Alpine Avenue.
Pantries need canned fruits, veggies and meats, pasta, cereal and peanut butter.
It’s a no-contact affair. You never have to get out of your car. Just put your items to donate in your trunk, drive to the end of 3 Mile to the turn around and pull up in front of the station. Smiling volunteers will take your donations right from your trunk.
Help us fill a truck with food and feed our hungry neighbors!
And if you prefer a financial donation … text PANTRY to 50503.
