Lake Placid monthly food drive news

To the editor:

¯ Second Saturday, July 11, 9 a.m. to noon

¯ Third Thursday, July 16, 5 to 7 p.m.

Thanks to all who supported our community’s food needs during the Lake Placid Ecumenical Food Pantry’s inaugural food drive on June 13 and 18. Between monetary and food donations we collected enough for about 485 meals! That’s enough food to feed a family of 4 for about 40 days, three meals a day! Wow! 

We hope that you will support the community’s food needs during this month’s food drives on second Saturday (July 11), 9 a.m. to noon, and third Thursday (July 16), 5 to 7 p.m. The drop-off is St. Agnes Church’s parking lot at the corner of Saranac Avenue and Hillcrest Avenue in Lake Placid.

Thank you for your generosity in June in providing about 485 meals. Let’s keep the momentum for July! You can find a menu of items needed at bit.ly/LPfooddrive. For information, please contact RotaryLakePlacid@gmail.com or 518-946-7851.
