Kiwanis Club of East Boston launches 2nd Annual Food Drive 11/03/2010: Kiwanis Club of East Boston launches 2nd Annual Food Drive

As with last year, the need to help those who help others with the gift of food is greater than ever! They say unemployment is down….but that does not take into account those that have expired their benefits or those whom are now under employed!

The Kiwanis Club of East Boston along with the support of East Boston Savings Bank is running its 2nd Annual Food Drive to benefit the Grace Federated Church and the Fran Rowan Meridian House.

Here are some good examples of what would be most appreciated for donated goods:

1.) Any canned food
2.) Cereal
3.) Powdered Milk
4.) Bagged or Boxed Pasta and/or Rice
5.) Macaroni and Cheese
6.) Pancake Mixes
7.) Condiments
8.) Flour, Corn Meal
9.) Cooking Oils

Any other non-perishable items that you think might come to good use. Note: Please make sure items donated are NOT expired! If you wouldn’t consume it yourself, don’t donate it!

Bins will be set up by this Friday, November 5th at the following locations:

4 East Boston Saving Bank locations: 1.) 10 Meridian Street East Boston, MA 2.) 1 Bennington Street East Boston, MA 3.) 856 Bennington Street East Boston, MA 4.) 67 Prospect Street Peabody , MA

A collection bin will also be set up at the East Boston Main Streets office located at 146 Maverick Street East Boston, MA

Organizers say last year's effort was a great success and with YOUR generosity we helped feed many families and individuals! Let’s do it again!
