This particular food drive benefiting The Daily Bread Community Food Pantry has been an annual event sponsored by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints since 2012.
As a member of this congregation, it has been a fun experience for our family to participate in this event each year. With my four children, we have shivered in the cold, handing out lists of needed items to shoppers as they enter the store. We have loaded and unloaded donations in and out of cars and trucks.
By far, one of our favorite ways to participate is when we take the donated bags and sort them into the various categories: cereal, canned fruit, diapers, and personal care items. My youngest was only 6 years old for the first food drive and she LOVED to sort everything and to run it to the correct crate for repackaging!
The end of the drive has everyone who owns a truck or who can borrow a truck helping to load the donations to take them from our church building to the pantry, where more volunteers wait to help unload.
Everyone helps and every single donation to the pantry helps fill a local need. Please consider stopping by tomorrow to help fill our empty shelves!
Thank you so much!
