It is that time again to start up our annual food drive. This will be the club’s 6th year doing this and it has become a tradition. We will be collecting food donations at club functions leading up to the expected drop-off day, Saturday November 23 during the KOB TV Live broadcast at ABQ Uptown.
We invite you to load up your 4x4 with food donations to drop off during this live broadcast. It is a great experience in kicking off the Holiday Season by giving. If you cannot or don’t wish to participate in the drop-off, I encourage everybody to bring food donations to any club function prior to the 23rd. As was done last year, an extra ticket will be given for the club’s 50/50 raffle to anyone who brings a food or monetary donation to the October, and November club meetings. There will be more detail coming. Here are some donation suggestions from the Roadrunner Food Bank:
- Donate Non-Perishable Items
- Donate Foods You Would Like To Eat
- Give Cash Donations
- Give Items like these: Macaroni & Cheese, Canned Entrees, Peanut Butter, Single Serving Foods, Sugar, Baby Food, Canned Vegetables, Pastas, Cooking Oil, Rice, Canned Fruit, Boxed Meals, Canned Meat, Soups, Dried Pinto Beans.
- Donate Home Canned or Jarred Items - the Food Bank cannot accept them due to Health Department regulations
- Donate Items without Labels - the Food Bank cannot accept items that are not in their original packaging or that are missing labels
- Donate Items that have been Opened
- Give Items in Glass containers - because they may break - Plastic is better
- The club will line up in the parking lot at the NW corner of Prospect and Cutler (behind the Homewood Suites).
