There will be a food drive to benefit the pantry on Saturday, November 7th. The food drive is being run by the volunteer firefighters of the Depew Fire Department.
Village of Depew
Annual Food Drive
For the benefit of the
Tri-Community Food Pantry
Saturday, November 7, 2015
Please place your donations at your curb for pickup by 10 a.m.
Thank you to all of the contributors, benefactors and volunteers that have allowed us, the Tri-Community Food Pantry, to provide emergency food relief to over 500 individuals in our Village of Depew!
We accept all donations of non-perishable food items and personal paper items, but are in desperate need of the staples we distribute to our families:
Fruit, Tuna, Peanut Butter, Vegetables and Soup
This is an annual event run by the fire department. Members of the department will drive down the streets of the village and pick up food left at the curb. They will then deliver it to the pantry. At the end of the drive, the firefighters are invited to the pantry for a hot dog cook-out so we can show our appreciation.
We are looking for volunteers to help during the event. Volunteers will perform the following duties:
- Setup / Tear down
- Unpack food
- Sort and count food
- Stock or store food in the pantry
We will need volunteers to arrive at the pantry at 10:00 AM. The event will run until all food has been delivered to the pantry and the food as been processed. Hopefully everything will be completed by 4:00 PM. If you can volunteer for all or a portion of that time, please log into the Volunteer Portal, click on the Sign Up To Volunteer link, go to the Fireman’s Food Drive sign up sheet and sign up.
