Salvation Army food drive set for Saturday in Sequim

SEQUIM — The Northwest Division of the Salvation Army will conduct a community food drive from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 14.

The volunteers will be outside the QFC store at 990 E. Washington St. to collect donations of non-perishable food.

The drive is part of a larger effort at QFC stores across western Washington. Volunteers will be on hand at nine regional stores and other stores will host drop-off collection bins.

Donations will be used to build grocery boxes for distribution to local families for Thanksgiving.

The following non-perishable items are recommended for donation: boxed stuffing or potatoes; pasta and rice; canned vegetables or fruit; canned chili, soup or gravy; canned meat or tuna; boxed meals such as Hamburger Helper; peanut butter; and baby food.

Monetary donations are also needed to continue Salvation Army services throughout the region.

Donations can be made online at northwest.salvationarmy.org.
