Many in the High Country need our help this time of year to make sure they have at least one healthy meal a day.
Winter weather has arrived, and schools are about to be out for the holidays, which will put a strain on many families.
The Women’s Fund of the Blue Ridge invites the High Country community to support our neighbors by giving the gift of food. We are kicking off a food drive called “Pack the Pantry” in Ashe county. With your help, we can pack the trailer to help those in need. Location and dates are:
Drop off location
First National Bank
1488 Mt. Jefferson Road
West Jefferson, NC
December 2 – 14
The food drive will be open daily 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. during the dates listed. Just shop and then drop your food inside the trailer. All collected food items stay in Ashe county!
Help us pack the trailer with non-perishable goods such as canned fish or meat, canned soups, crackers, pastas, peanut or almond butter, baby food and formula, granola bars, juice boxes, nuts, and cereal. Home-canned goods cannot be donated.
