Decorating Food Donation Bins for Dr. MLK Jr. 40 Days of Peace Food Drive

09:00 am to 03:00 pm
The Endwright Center, 631 W. Edgewood Drive, Ellettsville
http://www.area10agency.org

Come have fun decorating food donation bins (40 gallon size ) using the theme of Martin Luther King: 40 Days of Peace. The decorated bins will be used to collect non-perishable food items at area groceries, schools, retail stores, apartments, etc, to stock Area 10’s Food Pantries. The food will then be delivered to homebound seniors.

To kick off our food drive, the colorful bins will be on display Monday, January 20 at the Endwright Center as part of Area 10’s MLK Day celebration, which also includes a Tech Fair. Volunteers will also be at each of Area 10’s food pantries cleaning, painting and organizing. The food drive will continue through the next 40 days. Each day we will feature the art work and location of one bin on our website and facebook page.

If you’d like to help decorate a bin, come to the Endwright Center any time on Friday, January 10th between 9:00am-3:00 pm. There will be some art supplies on hand or you can bring your own.

The Dr. MLK Jr. Food Drive and Tech Fair are made possible by a grant from the City of Bloomington’s Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Commission, and sponsored by Area 10 Agency on Aging, RSVP, Endwright Center and Nutrition programs. For Additional Information: 812-876-3383 ex. 515

Cost: Frre! Bring a non-pershible food item to donate!
