Each fall, it is the goal of Neighbors in Need to provide assistance to 23 local food pantries in Defiance, Paulding and Williams counties in northwest Ohio.
Radio station 105.7 The Bull kicked off the 2013 campaign on Friday, Oct. 25, and will be collecting donations through Friday, Dec. 6.
In addition to all of the live drive locations, collection barrels can be found throughout the campaign at the Chief Supermarket locations in Defiance, Bryan and Paulding.
Additionally, there are collection cans in businesses all over northwest Ohio in which to make monetary donations.
There are many individuals and families around the community that use local food pantries on a regular basis to put a meal on their table. The collection of nonperishable food items and monetary donations goes directly into local food pantries. One hundred percent of donations stays local.
