Can you donate two hours? Volunteers are needed! Sign up for a two-hour shift (contact Jay Johnson @ 326-2636) and hand out fliers with suggested food items – as well as collect donations at the following locations:

  • Anderson’s – Glen Arbor: October 27 & December 21, 2018
  • Leland Mercantile – Leland: September 8 & October 20, 2018

You can work solo or with another volunteer from your community.

All you’ll be needing is a great big  friendly smile! Contact Jay Johnson @ 326-2636.

Local food pantries rely on LCDP Food Drives throughout the year and your efforts are needed!

FYI: Donations from the Mercantile and Hansen’s go to the Leelanau Christian Neighbors to support their food banks in both Northport and Suttons Bay. Donations from Buntings go to Holy Rosary/St. Rita’s Food Bank. Donations from Anderson’s and Deering’s are given to the Empire Area Food Bank.
