Douglas Disposal drivers hold annual food drive

by Rosemarie Middendorf

Just to be sure you haven’t forgotten: The Douglas Disposal Inc.’s sixth annual Food Drive will take place the week of Monday, Dec. 4, through Friday, Dec. 8.

Drivers are asking all residential customers to prepare bags of non-perishable foods and/or household goods and place the bags next to trash cans on the regular pickup day.

Many items are acceptable – any canned fruits, soups, vegetables, meats, juices, jellies, syrups, etc., baby foods, cereals and formulas.

Anything you know your family will enjoy, most others will also. Soaps, toothpaste, hair spray, toilet tissue, Kleenex, hair brushes, combs, hair pins, deodorants, dish soap, cleanser, laundry soaps are all items that are necessary in every family situation.

The drivers will collect the bags and deliver them to the Carson Valley Community Food Closet.

Among the Douglas Disposal drivers participating in this event are James Aldridge, Fred Buffington, Tom Brown, John Daniels, Mike Farkas, Doug Grattan and Scott Toomey.

These gentlemen, along with owner Carol Sessor and the office staff, thank Carson Valley residents for their continued support.

The food closet attempts to provide emergency foods year-round to those who qualify through Douglas County Social Services. For information, call 782-3711 Monday, Wednesday or Friday from 1 to 4 p.m.
