BENTON – The Tribune Courier, WCBL and WCCK will team up to Feed The Need this Saturday at local grocery stores.
Representatives from the media outlets will be on hand at several Marshall County food stores to accept donations to help stock the Marshall County Needline in preparation for the holiday season.
The event will be held from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the following locations: King Brothers in Benton and Draffenville, Save-A-Lot, Food Giant and Family Dollar in Calvert City, Rodney’s IGA and Food World in Possum Trot.
Venita Fritz, General Manager of The Tribune-Courier, said the first Feed The Need event held last year went a long way toward helping Needline assist families in need of food and pantry items.
“We were overwhelmed by the community’s generosity last year,” said Fritz. “We hope people will come out again this year to help those less fortunate. Needline is always busiest this time of year and anything we can do to help as a community is always appreciated by their staff and the recipients.”
Those wishing to donate to Feed The Need may visit the store on the day of the event and make a purchase. A list of most-needed items will be available at the store.
Anyone wishing to make a cash donation to Feed The Need can contact The Tribune Courier at 527-3162 WCBL/WCCK at 527-3102. All cash donations will be used to purchase food items at one of Marshall County’s locally owned grocery stores participating in the event.
