Donations and Volunteers Needed for the Great Moscow Food Drive

The Latah County Human Rights Task Force will sponsor The Great Moscow Food Drive on Saturday, October 1, 2011. Items will be collected from 8:00am to 1:00pm in Friendship Square, Downtown Moscow, ID.

The need for donations of non-perishable food, toilet, and household items in our region is great. For the past ten years the Great Moscow Food Drive has responded by collecting items once a year at the Moscow Farmers Market. The first Drive took place in the year 2000, and set a goal of collecting 2,000 items. That goal was exceeded, and the response has been growing each year.

This year the Food Drive is sponsored by the Latah County Human Rights Task Force. Due to increasing need, the donation goal has been raised to 3,000 items. This ambitious goal can be reached if everyone does their share. Please be generous and compassionate and bring as many items as possible to the Moscow Farmers Market on October 1st. Trucks will be available to gather contributions. Donations of cash will also be accepted at the Food Drive Table.

Volunteers are needed on October 1st to help collect items, load trucks, and unload donations at area food banks. Volunteers are also needed before October 1st to plan outreach and publicize the Drive on campus and in the community. To volunteer email and give your name, phone number, and email address. Thank you in advance for your contributions!
