All non-perishables collected will be distributed to Franklin County food pantries and food programs. Most of the pantries are small church pantries throughout the county.
There are 17 pantries in all that receive the items. The food will also be used to provide for 60 families in the YABA Christmas Care program.
Drop-off sites are convenient, including each town hall in Franklin County and each library branch.
Franklin county schools, Girl Scouts, Union Bank and Wake Electric are sponsoring their own collections as well.
Especially needed are canned fruits and canned meats such as tuna and chicken. Peanut butter and any canned vegetables are also needed, including green beans.
