Food drive kicks off Sept. 6
Times may be tough, but with a little help itâ€™s possible to make it through.
Isaiah 58, along with numerous other food pantries in the area, has been hard hit with a shortage of supply. In fact, because of higher grocery prices and fewer food and monetary donations, many food banks have been turning families away or closing altogether.
Beginning Tuesday and continuing through Sept. 23, the Big Spring Herald and United Way of Big Spring and Howard County will team with Wal-Mart and H-E-B to put on a food drive to benefit Isaiah 58. Drop-off locations will be set up Tuesday at both entrances of Wal-Mart and H-E-B, as well as the United Way, located in the Chamber of Commerce building at 215 W. Third, and the Big Spring Herald offices at 710 Scurry.
Drop-off boxes will be marked and those wanting to donate can simply stop by and drop in their donations. All non-perishable food items are acceptable.
For more information, contact Amanda Moreno at the Herald at 263-7331, ext. 234, or Sandy at the United Way at 267-5201.
