Food donation drive with Jenkins Chevrolet to benefit Citrus County Blessings; also, weekend activities planned
Doing their part in the effort to “Silence Weekend Hunger,” throughout August, Jenkins Chevrolet is asking people to drop off donations of non-perishable food items for school kids enrolled in the Citrus County Blessings supplemental weekend take-home food program.
The food items Blessings distributes each week need to be single-serve, easy-open and nonperishable, said Christina Reed, Blessings executive director.
“We would also love jelly and jam in plastic containers to pair with the peanut butter we receive from Williston Peanuts each month,” Reed said.
When folks drop off their donations, they can register to win one of three backpacks Jenkins Chevrolet is offering to give-away.
