In conjunction with The Estridge Companies and Extreme Makeover: Home Edition you are invited to participate in a food drive with a twist. Canned, boxed and non-perishable food items are being collected for Second Helpings for the 2900 meals they prepare daily. They will also distribute food to other local food pantries, including Gleaner’s Food Bank.
Your organization is encouraged to collect food items from Wednesday, March 25th through Sunday April 12th. Make it fun - instead of gathering these items in tubs and storing them in a corner use the donated food items to build a home or building. Stack cereal boxes on top of jars of applesauce to build walls or take 300 cans of green beans and build a model of the Great Pyramids.
A special thanks to FedEx for agreeing to pickup food donations from churches, businesses and schools throughout Indianapolis and Sarah Fisher for her help in getting the message out.
