Monroe County United Ministries (MCUM) will be partnering with Monroe County grocery stores, Friday, August 23 through Sunday, August 25, to accept food donations for community residents in need during the eighth annual “Each One, Feed One” Community Food Drive. More than 200 volunteers will be collecting non-perishable food donations at area grocery stores in order to restock one of Monroe County’s largest food pantries after a summer of diminished donations. Help us to meet our goal of collecting over 16,000 pounds of food, cleaning supplies, and hygiene items for families experiencing a financial crisis. Financial donations are also gratefully accepted. Those seeking basic needs assistance from Monroe County United Ministries are in financial crisis, often due to unavoidable shocks such as unemployment, divorce, an unexpected repair, injury, and illness. In response, MCUM provides the basics, including: food; clothing; hygiene items; cleaning supplies diapers; and rent, mortgage, and utility assistance, to help struggling households return to self-sufficiency after a challenging time.
