September 21, 2020 – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
In these uncertain times, food insecurity is a grave concern. Our friends, neighbors, and family are in need. The Allegan County Food Pantry Collaborative’s 1st Annual SOUP Drive is an opportunity to help families through the upcoming months. Any and every amount helps. Please donate today.
The Allegan County Food Pantry Collaborative (a program of the Allegan County Community Foundation) is excited to kick off our 1st Annual SOUP Drive! The soup drive runs from October 1 – October 31, 2020. Our goal is 20,000 cans of soup – this sets the stage for the sixteen members of the Collaborative to provide soup for families during the cold winter months. This time for low-income families is especially difficult with increased food costs, rising unemployment, and the unknowns we are facing from the COVID-19 pandemic.
With COVID-19, we too, are having to make decisions now that may change later. We most certainly will be having a virtual soup drive.
HOW CAN YOU PARTICIPATE IN OUR VIRTUAL SOUP DRIVE?
