Food donations up, but still not enough in Marion County
With only one week left, a Marion County-sponsored food drive still needs donations. Interfaith Emergency Services is helping collect food for the “Bring the Harvest Home” food drive. Warehouse Manager Thomas Curtis says while donations are up, it’s still not enough to meet the demand.
Non-perishable food, baby items and toiletries can be donated at area fire stations and libraries. The food drive ends October 25.
