November ’15 Food and Household Supplies Drive!

It’s that time of year again…. time for the NFPN’s holiday donation drive! It will run from November 1-30, 2015.

This year we are focusing on food staples, essential kitchen items and other household supplies. Typically, food pantries and hot meal programs are able to provide families in need with produce, bread, canned goods and other non-perishables. However, they are rarely able to provide the kitchen essentials needed to prepare these foods, such as pots and pans, cooking oil and spices. They also rarely receive other crucial family items such as hygiene products, baby and senior citizen essentials, and pet food for the service animals of disabled clients.

That’s where you come in!

Donate items by contacting Megan Hinchy at megan [at] whpdevelopmentcouncil.net. Or, if you’d rather contribute a few dollars towards the purchase of these goods, check out our GoFundMe:
