While you're out and about Christmas shopping and in the giving spirit, you can stop by the Con-way Freight food drive.
This is their second year organizing a food drive to benefit the Abused Adult Resource Center.
Diane Zainhofsky, Executive Director of the AARC says the holidays are the times when they can really use the extra help.
"The concept of people in the community wanting to help the women and children in the shelter is what's really important this morning, you know, and for people to know that during the holidays, people are always on a pretty tight budget including non-profit organizations because we are giving," says Diane Zainhofsky, Executive Director, AARC.
Items needed are toiletries, paper goods, and non-perishable items.
Last year more than 700 pounds of items were collected.
"AARC was one of the charities that we picked. There are a couple of us that feel pretty strongly about the good work that they do in town here. We wanted to make sure that we, I guess, kind of give back and give to a worthy cause like that," says Matthew Rydberg, Service Center Manager.
If you would like to make a donation, you can drop your items off at Cashwise foods.
