Its that time of the year again! As the holiday season approaches, we tend to get more into the giving spirit and helping others. Which is WONDERFUL! The holiday seasons, for most, are full of cherished time with family and friends. Unfortunately not all of us get to experience this “most wonderful time of the year.”
C.A.L.L. Food Pantry is a non-profit organization that distributes food to low income families in Mercer County based on their income level. C.A.L.L. receives no assistance from the government, which gives them the best opportunity to help those who are most in need, but that also means that they need even more support from the good people of our community.
Justin Griesdorn is holding the annual Cash for Cans canned food drive to support C.A.L.L. Food Pantry in Celina, OH! This promotion, which was started by the late Randy Griesdorn, is meant to bring in nonperishable food items from the community that will then be matched monetarily by a handful of Mercer County businesses through donations. All of the canned and nonperishable food items and the donated money will go directly to C.A.L.L. Food Pantry.
A handful of local Mercer County businesses are setting up collection stations for cans and other nonperishable food items from Monday, November 9th to Friday, December 11th. On Wednesday, December 17th, every food item that is received will then be taken over to Chief Super Markets in Coldwater to be scanned, and all of the businesses involved will then match the total dollar amount of the food in the form of a donation to C.A.L.L. Therefore, not only will C.A.L.L. receive all of the food that is donated, they will also receive the actual cash value of all the food collected, making your canned food donation all the more valuable.
We have six different collection centers set up all throughout Mercer County. See the above image for locations!
A special thank you to all who have donated in the past and those who chose to give this year!
