On Saturday, Nov. 17, a food drive will be held to help the Surface Creek Community Services Food Bank. Volunteers from the food bank will be collecting food at the Cedaredge FoodTown store from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The number of families needing assistance from the food bank is growing each month, with the food bank now serving over 200 families from the Surface Creek Valley each month. The food bank serves residents with the zip codes of 81410, 81413, 81414 and 81418.
The Surface Creek Valley community has always been very supportive of the food bank and it is hoped that support continues Nov. 17 when volunteers will be accepting and boxing non-perishable items. Cash donations, which are tax-deductible, will also be accepted with the money used to purchase other needed items. Fill your grocery baskets with a few extra items and donate generously to the food bank on Saturday, Nov. 17.
