Donations Wanted: Wellington’s Annual Holiday Food Drive Is Now Underway

In the spirit of giving and in an effort to ensure that no Wellington resident goes without a hot meal this Thanksgiving, the Village of Wellington invites residents to participate in the annual Holiday Food Drive.

The village is partnering with local community partners and their various organizations to solicit and receive donated food items for this year’s annual Holiday Food Drive and Distribution.

Donations are currently being accepted and will continue through Friday, Nov. 10. Residents are asked to contribute non-perishable food items. Please make sure that the items have not exceeded their expiration dates.

Items needed include: mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, cornbread muffin mix, canned vegetables (green beans, peas, corn, sweet potatoes), packaged stuffing and turkey gravy.

Wellington residents will find convenient drop-off locations for their donations at several village facilities, including the Wellington Community Center, Wellington Village Hall, the Wellington Tennis Center and Village Park.
