Local food drive ongoing through Feb. 11

SKOWHEGAN — Skowhegan Savings Bank recently announced its main office will host a food drive the first few weeks of February.

Community members are encouraged to drop off non-perishable food items to Skowhegan Savings Bank at the Main Office, 13 Elm St., by Tuesday, Feb. 11. Skowhegan Savings Bank is the latest local business in mid-Maine to collect food for local food pantries through United Way of Mid-Maine’s Pantry Project.

The goal of the Pantry Project is to work with businesses to help keep our food pantry shelves full all year long. The Pantry Project is a mobile collection center that businesses use temporarily while they encourage staff and customers to bring in and donate non-perishable food items.

United Way of Mid-Maine seeks additional businesses and organizations that would like to host the Pantry Project for 2-3 weeks at their location. For more information, call United Way of Mid-Maine at 873-0686.

United Way of Mid-Maine serves northern Kennebec, Somerset and western Waldo counties.
