Thompson Family Food Drive "Means it" this Saturday
The Thompson Family City Wide Food Drive is when you leave non-perishable food items near your mailbox for volunteers to pick up between 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. It is preferred that items be set in a grocery bag and made available by 10 a.m. this Saturday. Other items in need include paper towels, toilet paper, deodorant and shampoo. If you would rather bring your items to a drop off location, you may do so at the Butte Emergency Food Bank (1019 East Second), and select spots at Safeway on Front Street, Three Bears Alaska, and the Racetrack Fire Hall off of Farragut. Cash donations are also very much appreciated and can be made by visiting HERE. The food drive this Saturday is in memory of Jim and Margie Thompson, who operated Thompson Distributing in Butte with their family and staff for years, and where the Drive was first established. Here's to all of us "meaning it" by coming together to do our part!
