|Hood View Gardens holds food drive posted on 08/01/2018|
Dennis Nash, one of the co-owners of Hood View Gardens,
noted that some of the customers that walk through his door may need help from
The community outreach program sponsored by Hoodland
Lutheran Church provides food, wood, and financial assistance for heating,
medicine, utilities, gas vouchers and transportation for those in the community
And to help them, Hood View Gardens will hold a canned food
drive to benefit the Neighborhood Missions food pantry from Tuesday, Aug. 7
through Sunday, Aug. 19.
“What better way to help the community,” Nash said, adding
that he didn’t know about Neighborhood Missions until this summer.
For the drive, people can bring in three cans or jars of
high-protein food items such as canned tuna, salmon, chicken, beef or turkey,
peanut butter, pinto or black beans, lentils, chili, oats or quinoa and receive
a 20 percent discount off their entire purchase, or bring in three items of
pasta, canned corn, green beans, peas, rice or toiletry items and receive a
discount of 10 percent off their total purchase. All items must be in new and
unopened containers, and cans need to be free of dents and cannot be expired or
near expiration date. Discounts cannot be combined with other discounts.
Nash noted that if the response is strong, the event could
be recurring each year.
