Holiday Needs: Can You Help?
All-City Food Drive: Nov. 4, 9:00-3:00. Please tell your friends and family to look for the red collection barrels at 90 local businesses kicking off the holiday season of giving. These barrels will stay in place throughout the holidays. Donations may also be dropped off at the Marysville Community Food Bank or any city building.
Holiday Needs. During the holidays the following are especially needed. Canned goods: canned hams (for our homeless), chicken noodle and cream of mushroom soup, corn, fruit, fruit cocktail, yams, sweet potatoes, cranberries, pumpkin, olives, peanut butter, jelly, cooking oil. Packaged foods: Jell-o and pudding mix, gravy mix, stuffing mix. Frozen items: turkeys, whole chickens, hams. Dairy: butter. Cash donations are always appreciated for essentials.
Toy and Gift Collections. The Toy Store will be gratefully accepting donations of new toys, books, coats and unwrapped gifts for families in need. Drop off gifts at the MCFB or watch for the red collection barrels at stores near you during the holidays. Also, cash donations for toy purchases are always appreciated.
Volunteers Needed! To help at the Marysville Community Food Bank during the busy holiday season, please call (360) 658-1054. Send inquiries about the Toy Store and how you can help to Tara at firstname.lastname@example.org.
