Blair County Food Drive to be held next week

The Blair County Food Drive will be held Monday through Nov. 15 from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. each day outside of Sam’s Club and Walmart of Altoona.

There are a couple of ways to donate to the food drive to help those in need this holiday season.

While shopping, pick up extra items and place them in bins on the way out of the store (located at all exits), or bring new, unopened, up-to-date items to donate.

This year, drive organizers are taking extra precautions due to COVID-19.

All of the volunteers will be outside instead of inside and will be wearing masks.

Organizations that will benefit from the contributions are: The Fathers House, The Lion’s Pantry, St. Vincent de Paul Soup Kitchen, Domestic Abuse Shelter, Home Nursing Agency, The Tiger Pack Program, American Rescue Workers, Blair Family Solutions, Family Resource Center at the United Way of Blair County and the 28th Street Food Pantry.

For more information, contact Denice Stone, Blair County Food Drive, at 312-2667.
