Endicott Elks Helps CHOW Fight Hunger
The Endicott Elks, 619 North Nanticoke Avenue in Endicott, will serve a spaghetti and meatball dinner tomorrow from 5 - 8 PM to benefit CHOW. All proceeds from the meal will go to help CHOW fight hunger in our community.
Along with money raised through dinner sales there will be door prizes available and food donations will be accepted. Appearing this morning on WNBF First News with Roger Neel CHOW Director Mike Leahey said the need for additional food supplies comes as school prepares to close down for the summer months. Children from needy families who have been able to access nutritional and balanced meals throughout the school year will now need the benefit of more food available at home.
Pasta, peanut butter, cereal, canned soups and spaghetti sauce are items that are needed
and can help feed families during the summer months.Tickets for the pasta dinner are available at the door for $8.50. Tickets for those 12 and under are $4.25 at the door. Diners can eat-in or take home.
According to Leahey over 31,000 pounds of food was donated to CHOW during the recent postal drive held a couple of weekends ago. Postal carriers from all over the area picked-up food donations for CHOW from residents along their mail route.
