Interfaith Outreach Organizes “Shop Then Drop” Food Shelf Drop-Off Event
During the last year Interfaith Outreach in Plymouth have served an additional 820 families. Like all food shelves, they rely on a strong month of March to meet financial and food donation goals for the year.
“Those funds help us deliver wrap around services really with an emphasis on on helping people find jobs and ladder up to increase their earning potential and prevent hunger in the future,” said Liz Erstad-Hicks, Interfaith Outreach‘s Community Engagement Director.
This year Interfaith Outreach is putting the focus on a one day event coming up at the end of the month called Shop Then Drop. They are encouraging people in the community to collecting items to donate now.
“Go out and shop for those specific items we need in the food shelf. Then swing by our parking lot on Tuesday March 30th between 3:00 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. You can safely deliver those donations. We’ll have volunteers ready to assist. And you can leave with a goodie bag full of additional activities and ideas of how you your family your business can continue to prevent hunger in our community,” said Erstad-Hicks.
Interfaith Outreach hopes to raise $200,000 during the drive which will extend through April 16th. To learn what items they need for their food shelf, you can go to their website.
