BROWNSBURG – The Town of Brownsburg is planning its annual “Let’s Give” food drive to help a local pantry keep shelves stocked with non-perishable items through the holiday season. Town administration asks for the community’s support so area families in need can keep meals on the table.
Canned and packaged items can be donated in the Brownsburg Town Hall lobby from 7:30 to 4:30 weekdays, November 2 through December 4. The collection will be delivered to the Messiah Lutheran Food Pantry, which served nearly 725 Hendricks County families with more than 2,000 boxes of food last year. The pantry distributes 40 to 60 boxes of food each Saturday morning, with the greatest need in November and December.
The Town’s 2014 “Let’s Give” food drive collected more than 2,200 items. The following items are suggested:
• Cereal and oatmeal
• Peanut butter
• Canned meat, chicken and tuna
• Canned or dry soup
• Canned fruit, vegetables and beans
• Boxed/canned potatoes
• Macaroni & cheese, rice and pasta
• Pasta sauce
To make it easier for those who don’t find weekday business hours convenient, the MOMS Club of Avon/Brownsburg will volunteer at Brownsburg Town Hall to collect donations on Sunday, November 22. Area residents may simply drive up and drop off food drive donations from 1 to 4 p.m.
Brownsburg Park B.A.S.E. sites will also be accepting donations from enrolled students.
