Local food drive benefits Good Samaritan Food Pantry
CARBONALE, Ill - A local shopping center is hosting an annual food drive in which all the donations will be given to the Good Samaritan Food Pantry.
The Murdale Shopping Center on Carbondale's west end will host the food drive through Sunday, December 15th.
Donors are encouraged to drop off any size bag of canned or packaged food items to any participating Murdale Merchant and place the donation in the Good Sam donation box.
In order to keep the one-visit-per-month limit to the pantry for each family equal and consistent, the Murdale Merchants collect and deliver food weekly.
Donors can register to win a $100 Murdale Gift Certificate, although Murdale business owners and employees are not eligible. The winnder will be drawn Monday, December 16th.
