Can Do: Post launches canned food drive

The Salisbury Post launches its second annual “Can Do” Food Drive today.
The Post invites readers to drop off canned goods and other nonperishable food in our lobby at 131 W. Innes St. weekdays between now and Christmas. Post staff members will deliver food to Rowan Helping Ministries and the Salvation Army.
Needed items include:
• Dry food, bagged or boxed
• Dry or bagged beans
• Canned meats (ravioli, spaghetti sauce, etc.)
• Canned fish (tuna, etc.)
• Peanut butter
• Jelly
• Canned fruits and vegetables
Last year’s Can Do drive rounded up 2,129 pounds of food, plus $2,500 worth of goods from Food Lion and 100 cases of Apple Uglies from Apple Baking Co.
The Post is also holding a Helping Handbags drive. Drop off your gently worn or new purses, totes or wallets to be sold in our lobby Dec 5 and 6, with proceeds going Christmas Happiness. Any items left after the sale will be donated to a nonprofit thrift store. There will also be a drawing for a new tote and a triple pouch after the sale.
The Post has the advantage of a central location and a large megaphone, figuratively speaking. We’d like to put those to use to help others as we head into Thanksgiving and the Christmas season.
Drop off your donated goods in the Post lobby between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday-Friday. If you’re downtown shopping or doing business — or just passing through — we hope you’ll come by and make a food donation. Thank you in advance for any food you can share. And thanks for reading the Salisbury Post.
