Ridge Napa Auto Parts and Zeta Chi Sorority are teaming up to launch their annual holiday food drive to help benefit local families.
They need your help again this year.
This year's food drive is especially important given the fact many families have lost their jobs right here in our community.
These are challenging economic times and your donation can really make a difference.
"All the food collected though the effort stays right here in Dowagiac," stated Dan Mather of Ridge Napa Auto Parts.
Lissa McIntosh of Zeta Chi Sorority states, "Last year, when we delivered food, our donations brightened the hearts of so many. I can remember one little boy being very excited over a box of Capt. Crunch cereal that he received. The little things we take for granted in our daily lives can bring true happiness and excitement to others."
While the holiday season is an enjoyable time for so many families, please consider helping those in our community who are less fortunate by making a donation today.
If you would like to donate, please drop off your can goods or non-perishable food items at Ridge Napa Auto Parts, 104 Division St.
A trailer, once again generously donated by Mike and Leslie Malin of MTL Lawncare, will be located in front of Ridge Napa Auto Parts Store from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Donations will be collected from Dec. 1 to Dec. 19. For additional information, call 782-2191.
