No one should go without a warm meal, especially during the holiday season. That’s exactly what motivated one of our team members to start a food drive. When she shared this passion with us at one of our weekly staff meetings, we gladly supported her and helped start and sponsor the Feel the Warmth Food Drive. Each year between Thanksgiving and Christmas, we place donation boxes around town at other businesses to collect canned goods, non-perishable items, and personal items. Once a week, we collect the items and take them to the local food pantry, the PCM Food Pantry in Monroe, Iowa. We are glad to help provide for those in the community in this small way!
Each week we were pleasantly surprised by the amount of support. Between our staff’s generosity and that of the community, we were able to fill our collection table and take boxes to the PCM Food Pantry each week!
Stay tuned – our Feel the Warmth Food Drive starts Monday, November 27th! Check out our Facebook event to see where the drop off locations will be.
Although we accept all donations during the 4 weeks, each week has its own theme:
Nov 27-Dec 1 Canned/Dry Foods (vegetables, rice, pasta)
Dec 4-8 Toiletries (toothpaste, toilet paper, deodorant)
Dec 11-15 Soups/Boxed Meals (like Hamburger Helper)
Dec 18-22 Dessert/Drink Mixes (Kool-Aid, box cake mix)
