So far the food and winter clothing drive has resulted in over 200lbs of non-perishable food items being donated. We are still taking donations through end of December. Thanks so much for your help. Also if anyone is interested in volunteering for the food drive committee for next year please contact the Union Office. The winter clothing will be distributed on Monday 12/22 @ Council 94 (look for media coverage 6 o’clock news). Through your efforts twice as much winter clothing was collected than last year!
