The response to the WHO (Williams Homeless Outreach) Food Drive has been very positive, and we appreciate your support. Although the drive was originally scheduled to end November 16, WHO has decided to extend their campus food drive until Monday, November 25. Wild Oats will be a collection point for the drive until the 25th.
You can donate non-perishable items to the WHO drive at Wild Oats Market and at other locations around town. Donations are going to the Berkshire Food Project and the Friendship Center Food Pantry.
With the recent cuts in SNAP (food stamp) benefits, many in our region have been hit hard. At the end of October, the Friendship Center Food Pantry had registered more new families than ever before.
The WHO donation box is next to Customer Service in the front of the store. If you don’t see it, please ask! Any and all donations are greatly appreciated. Thank you!
