Operation Stand Down RI Food Drive & Dress Down for Charity

Tue, 11/08/2016 - 10:47 -- TedAlmon

In our never ending quest to help raise money and help our community, we are having Dress down for Charity days on Thursday, November 10th & Friday, November 11th. A donation of $5 (each participated day) will go directly towards Operation Stand Down RI. They help veterans secure stable housing and employment as well as other assistance according to individual needs including case management, basic human needs, referrals, and education and training services.

We are also collecting food donations from our employees and their families for Operation Stand Down RI. OSDRI houses over 90 low income Veteran’s and their families. OSDRI has its very own food pantry for any veteran in need. It is sad to say that food for our veterans have become one of the predominant demands. Food donations are in need.
We will have 2 donation bins (one in the front office as well as one in the back office). We will be collecting non-perishable food items to give to OSDRI.
Items that are in need are:

• Cereal
• Canned Meat
• Rice
• Canned Soup
• Canned Veggies
• Pasta
• Pasta Sauce
• Canned Fruit
• Peanut Butter
• Jelly
• Oatmeal
• Snacks
• Juice

Food donations will be accepted through November 2016.
