Friends/Pets in Need food drive underway
Food City has launched its second annual Friends/Pets in Need Holiday Food Drive.
The food drive will benefit local hunger relief organizations and animal shelters during the upcoming cold weather months.
Through December 31, specially marked bags containing non-perishable food items or pet food products will be available for purchase for $10 (plus tax) at all area Food City locations. Customers may purchase food bags or pet food bags and then deposit them in the collection bins located at the front of the store. One hundred percent of the products collected will benefit local hunger relief organizations and animal shelters throughout the region.
“Millions of Americans and animals need food assistance each year. The Food City Friends/Pets in Need Holiday Food Drive is another way we can help those in need right here in our own area,” said Kevin Stafford, vice president of marketing for Food City.
