LOVE is in the air at food collection drive and fundraiser
From October 2-5, the Associates from the Lapeer Wal-Mart will be collecting non perishable food and paper products for the food banks in Lapeer County and we will be having a fundraiser for LOVE Inc. The goal is to collect a semi trailer full.
We are asking all area businesses, organizations, schools and residents to help with this great cause.
With winter approaching fast along with the high fuel prices and lack of jobs, there will be many people that will need help. By coming together and collecting food to stock the food banks, we will at least make sure that people will be able to feed their families.
We are asking you to help collect non-perishable food and paper products at your school, business, organization, neighborhood, or even your home and then drop them off during the collection dates.
We will be collecting food in the front entrances of the store on October 2nd & 3rd. On the 4th & 5th we will be collecting the donations at the trailer in the parking lot.
On Saturday, October 4th we will be hosting a parking lot collection plus we hope to have area agencies and organizations set up booths and tables with information on the help available in Lapeer County. There will be events going on in the store, plus a hot dog wagon with the proceeds going to LOVE INC.
After the collection dates and with the full trailer, we will deliver the food to St. Paul's to be distributed throughout the county food banks. Many people will benefit from this food drive. If you or your organization has any questions, please contact us.
