Boys & Girls Club Seeks Donations for Food Drive

The Boys & Girls Club of Easton has announced it's holding a Thanksgiving food drive to benefit local families in need during the holiday season. Canned vegetables, boxed or canned potatoes, boxed or bagged stuffing, yams, cranberry sauce, drinks, and other non-perishable foods, along with new hats and gloves are all on the list of items being sought.

Members of the public who wish to contribute can drop off items at the club, located at  210 Jones-Houston Way, or at the Easton Teen Center, 1101 Northampton St., between 1 and 9 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and on Saturdays between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.

Donated food will be given to a local food bank in the Easton area to help families prepare for a holiday meal. The hats & gloves collected will be distributed to members of the Boys & Girls Club of Easton and their families.

The drive is being run by the Future Stars Torch Club, which is comprised of 11- to 13-year-old members of the Boys and Girls Club of Easton.

For more information about the drive, contact program director Tina Dowling-Hackett at 610-703-8575.
