Jennifer’s women’s boutique is collecting canned goods for Community Cooperative throughout the month of June. Shoppers who donate a minimum of 10 items will receive 20% off their entire purchase.
“Community Cooperative has been working hard to meet the growing need for food and resources in our community during this difficult time,” said Jennifer Williams, owner of Jennifer’s. “We host a summer food drive for Community Cooperative every year. The need this year is greater than ever and we are supporting Community Cooperative so they can continue their important work to feed people and nourish lives.”
“Our Mobile Food Pantry program has nearly tripled its outreach to get groceries to families in need all throughout Lee County,” said Tracey Galloway, CEO of Community Cooperative. “Our Meals on Wheels continues to safely deliver hot meals to our homebound seniors, one of our most vulnerable populations. We also serve fresh to-go meals from our Community Cafe to ensure our clients can still count on us for a hot meal.”
Suggested donation items include peanut butter and jelly, canned tuna, chicken, ham and beef, beans (all varieties), whole wheat pasta, pasta sauce, brown rice (family size bags), cereal, hamburger, chicken or tuna helper, canned fruit and vegetables, soup, macaroni and cheese, canned milk, child-friendly snacks, and food allergy-free items. No glass containers, please.
Last June Jennifer’s collected 1,200 pounds of food for Community Cooperative. This year’s goal is 1,500 pounds.
