The Easton Senior Center is hosting a Thanksgiving Food Drive and for the last few weeks they have been accepting donations for non-perishable items, and Wednesday is the last day to donate.
Volunteers at the center have been putting together bags of various non-perishable items donated by the town residents and collected by Samuel Staples Elementary School, the Redding-based National Charity League, local churches and Hilltop Painters in Easton.
The students at SSES also decorated each bag personally.
“We plan to have up to 125 bags,” said Diane Tatnall, an office clerk at the senior center. We are still in the process of making them but hope to get them all done by tomorrow.”
All of the bags will be donated and sent out in the morning on Wednesday, Nov. 15, and will be brought to the Recovery Network Program in Bridgeport.
“The donations will go to families of abusers and neglected families in Bridgeport that are in need of help.” says Randy Shapiro, the center’s assistant director.
Donations will be accepted until Wednesday Nov. 15 and can be dropped off from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at 650 Morehouse Road.
