Community food drive scheduled for Saturday

Posted: Updated:

The Owensboro Youth Council will host the 8th annual Youth For a Cause Community Food Drive Saturday morning.

This is a great way to get into the holiday spirit and also help out others in the community.

Here's some information about the food drive if you'd like to take part.

It will take place from 7:30 until 11:30 Saturday morning at the Wal-Mart and Kroger stores on Frederica Street in Owensboro.

Youth council members will have lists for you to take inside the stores with items that are needed.

Some of those include canned goods, boxed foods, and school supplies, but there are many, many more.

All donated items will go to the Help Office, school resource centers, and churches in the Owensboro and Daviess County area.

Last year's food drive helped feed over 260 families during the holidays.

The Owensboro Parks and Recreation Department is also co-hosting the food drive.

So if you'd like to get a jump start on helping others during the holidays, this is a great way to do that.
