The annual food drive for Thanksgiving is underway, and donations of both food and funds are still being taken.
Rita Holmes, who organizes the food drive in conjunction with Liberty Elementary School and Sallisaw 4-H, said donations may be dropped off at Armstrong Bank in Sallisaw. Both non-perishable food items and money may be left at the bank. Checks should be made out to Sallisaw 4-H.
Suggested food items are Ramen noodles, sugar, pasta, stuffing mixes, cake mixes and frosting, canned milk, canned meats, canned fruits, canned soups, peanut butter, corn bread mixes, oatmeal, spaghetti sauce, rice, gravy in cans, jars or mixes, boxed macaroni and cheese, canned vegetables, instant potatoes, pinto bean, etc.
The donations will be used to make Thanksgiving food baskets for families in Sallisaw Schools.
Holmes asked, “Please join us in our efforts to make this our largest food drive yet.”
