GREEN RIVER – Groups continue to help raise donations and awareness to a summer shortage of food at the local food banks.
Recently local food banks asked the public for help during the summer months. While residents often give during the winter holiday months, local food bank officials explained with school out for the summer, the need for food in low-income homes increases.
At the farmer’s Market in Green River on Wednesday, the Green River Main Street/Urban Renewal Agency will be helping the cause.
At the Green River URA/Main Street both on Wednesday, they will be accepting donations for the local food banks. Donations they will be accepting include canned fruit, canned meals and stews, powdered milk, cereal and fresh meat.
The agency will also be selling raffle tickets at its booth. If you purchase one or more ticket, you will receive a free one. All proceeds from the tickets go to the Green River Developmental Fund which will help fund beautification projects in the Green River Downtown area.
For more information go to the Green River URA/Main Street Website and Facebook Page.
