We’re soon entering the autumn/holiday part of the year when local food pantries will be asking for donations for their busiest time.
Since SRC members and families have a history of generosity toward those service organizations, here’s an idea from April Dowd on how to make such generosity very affordable.
Price Chopper/Market 32/Market Bistro this week has a lot of 10-for-$10 sale offers of non-perishable items (see flyer above). If you afford just $10, or if you can afford more, now would be a great time to stock up on such items and store them until we are called upon to donate to such food pantries as The Anchor, Doors of Hope, etc. Just browse the aisles to find the bargains.
Please bear in mind that while the pantries can use virtually any kinds of non-perishable food items (boxed, canned, jarred, etc.), they frequently also have a strong demand for personal hygiene items for their clients as well. Some of those are part of the sale offer.
