Spotlight on Charity: Mandarin Food Bank

The purpose of the Mandarin Food Bank is to provide food, clothing and special assistance to our neighbors in need.  The Food Bank has been opened for 25 years and its small army of volunteers have served over 7,000 families during that time. They rely strictly on donations from civic groups, churches, schools and businesses.  

The DWA will be sponsoring a peanut butter, jelly and oatmeal drive for the Food Bank this month from July 11-24.  These three food items are always needed as they are nonperishables and nutritious. The continued support from the Deercreek Women’s Alliance and Deercreek Community is greatly appreciated.  For more information about the Mandarin Food Bank, contact Carmen Kelly at 519-0622.
