Fill the Bus food drive coming

January 10, 2013
The sixth-annual Boundary County Fill the Bus food drive to re-stock shelves at the local food bank is taking place at all three local grocery stores on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Monday, January 21.

School buses will be at Safeway, Akins Harvest Foods and Super 1 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., and everyone is encouraged to bring in non-perishable food items, to go to the food bank that very day, because the need for food doesn't end after the the holidays, but continues all year.

The fill the bus drive is a project of the Lewis-Clark State Service Corps/Americorp, and volunteers are needed to make the drive a success. Instead of taking the holiday off, what better way to celebrate than by helping neighbors?

To find out more, call Angela Hittle, (208) 946-3017.
