Hays High DECA: Pack the Pantry Canned Food Drive
Saturday, November 13, 2021
Hays High DECA is excited to return to a traditional food drive that benefits the Community Assistance Center. As a result of COVID protocols & wanting to keep the community as safe as possible, this year's event had been delayed. This year's 2021 food drive will have a few adjustments to the typical Trick or Treat So Others Can Eat event.
Youth & adult volunteers from Hays give of their time to make this food drive a success. To assure residents that the items collected are for the Community Assistance Center, all volunteers will be wearing an identification badge with their group name clearly printed. Please leave items on the porch if donors will not be home or do not want someone ringing the doorbell.
Possible items to donate include Hamburger Helper or mac & cheese, jars of baby food, & non-perishable food items. If you prefer to make a cash donation, volunteers can accept cash or check donations the day of the food drive. Checks are always welcome & can be made payable to the Community Assistance Center & mailed to their address at 208 E. 12th Street, Hays, KS, 67601.
Any house missed or those living in a rural area may take food items to the Community Assistance Center in Hays located at 12th & Oak until noon November 30, 2021.
Hays High DECA still needs groups & organizations to assist with this year's collection. Please contact Shaina Prough at Hays High School, 623-2600, if you are interested in helping or need further information.
