The holiday season is full of opportunities to give to those who can’t afford to put nourishing meals on their family’s table. We would like to enlist your help in collecting non-perishable foods that we can donate to families in need.
Beginning Monday, November 11th we have placed donation boxes located at the Leasing Office, Laundry Center and Maintenance Shop. In addition to the boxes, we will be going around property on Tuesday, November 19th at 6pm to collect resident’s donation bags from their porches. We will not be knocking on doors this year, so be sure to leave your bags outside your apartment for pickup. The boxes on property will remain in place until we deliver them to local charities on Friday, November 22nd.
The best non-perishable foods to donate:
Peanut butter, or other nut butter
Canned fruit in juice, not in light or heavy syrup
Canned vegetables, with no or low-sodium
Canned tuna in water
Shelf-stable milk and milk substitutes
Whole grain pasta
Low-sodium pasta sauce
Popcorn kernels (not microwave popcorn)
Unsweetened apple sauce
Whole grain, low-sugar cold cereals
Olive or canola oil
Dried fruits, no sugar added
Chicken, beef and vegetable broths and stock.
We appreciate your help in advance.
