Stuff-A-Truck food drive to begin
Pete's County Market in Alexandria is sponsoring the 11th annual Stuff-A-Truck food drive to support the local food shelf. The dates of this year's drive are October 30 through November 12.
The food drive is a partnership with School District 206. Area students will collect food donations and on November 11 a semi will pick up food from the schools.
The public may drop off food and cash donations at Pete's County Market during the drive and may purchase a "Random Bag of Kindness," which contains personal hygiene items. The cost per bag is $9.99.
Last year, 14,000 pounds of food were collected, 205 Random Bags of Kindness were purchased, and $400 in cash was collected.
