Give thanks and give back to the Alden-Marilla Food Pantry

BY: Metro Source Staff | November 16, 2011

As part of their annual dispersal of funds, the Kiwanis Club of Marilla has made their annual donation to the Alden-Marilla Food Pantry.

When the donation was made to the pantry co-directors Ed and Beryl Small, they were asked about which supplies they might need. It was sad for Kiwanis president, Paul Wagener, to hear that their freezer was empty and their shelves are in great need of filling. This is attributed to a rise in need and fall in donations.

They stated that if anyone could donate the following, it would be very helpful: peanut butter, jelly, macaroni, canned fruit, rice-noodle side dishes, tea/coffee, tomato paste and/or sauce, baked beans, Jello and pudding mix, crackers, applesauce, canned meat and fish, stuffing mix, gravy, cranberry sauce, boxed potatoes, toilet paper, soap, and dish detergent.

Food pantry shopping lists are posted on the bulletin board in the Marilla Community Center, to help with this cause. To deliver food or donate to the pantry, please get a letter of referral from a local church for November and December of 2011. You don’t need to be a member of that church. Starting December 2011, please register at St. Aidan’s Episcopal Church, 13021 W. Main St. in Alden, between 1 and 3 p.m. on Mondays or 7 and 9 p.m. on Fridays.

Also, the Kiwanis Club of Marilla will have a decorated tree in the pavilion this year, with commemorative bulbs purchased by the community in honor or memory of loved ones. Bulbs are $1 per person and can be found at the Marilla Country Store, ordered from the bulletin boards at the Marilla Community Center, or mailed to Kiwanis Club of Marilla, 12655 Williston Road, Alden NY 14004. The deadline for receiving bulbs is Dec. 7.

For information about club membership, call 652-7608, e-mail kiwaniscofmarilla@yahoo.com or search “Kiwanis Marilla” on Facebook.
