Canfield holiday food drive underway

November 14, 2018
The Town Crier

The annual Andy Skrobola Memorial Food Drive is currently underway. The Canfield Lions Club and its associated LEOS organization based at Canfield High School, Knights of Columbus Council 11369, the Canfield Rotary Club and Canfield Community Care Net combine for this annual Thanksgiving and Christmas effort to feed 50 to 80 local families.

Hundreds of city and township residents filled grocery bags and left them on their porches or brought them to their local Cardinal Joint Fire District station. Lions Club and LEOS members then collected the bags from porches.

Canfield residents can continue to provide food and funding for this effort by filling up a grocery bag and dropping it off at the door of a nearby fire station. Financial contributions can be made through the Canfield Lions Club; send checks to Phil Bova, 311 Chapel Lane, Canfield, OH 44406.

Members of a joint group of Canfield non-profits help sort the food donations for the annual food drive.

Needed items are peanut butter, cereal, canned fruit and vegetables, soup, pasta, instant potatoes, jello, pudding, cake mixes, spaghetti sauce, rice, tuna, stuffing, coffee, sugar, flour, baby food, diapers, shampoo, toothpaste and toothbrushes.

Needy residents will be contacted about picking up their week's supply of food. Anyone knowing of a needy family in Canfield should contact guidance counselor Candice Reed at the high school office. Her number is 330-518-6902.
