Food drive nets a ton of donations
Last updated 11/19/2018 at 7:43pm
The Youth Group of the Odessa Community Ministerial Association and the drivers who assisted them collected 2,000 pounds worth of food donations from our generous community during the recent food drive for the upcoming holiday season. The group gathered in the fellowship hall of the Foursquare Church to organize and unpack the donations which will be gathered into holiday baskets for members of the community who request assistance from the food bank over the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.
The Odessa Food Bank is not open Thursday, November 15. In fact, the food bank is closed for the months of November and December, as holiday baskets are delivered at that time. If assistance is needed, patrons may contact Merleen Smith at 982-2202 and leave a message. Calls will be returned.
The food bank's next regular open day will be Thursday, January 17, 2019, from 1:30 to 3 p.m. and again from 5 to 6 p.m.
