Food Drive for New Hope Food Pantry:
Right here in Johnson County is a community food bank called New Hope Food Pantry. Located at 13310 S Black Bob Road, adjacent to the New Hope Presbyterian Church, they serve Johnson and Miami County residents in need of assistance.
When school lets out for the summer, oftentimes the food pantries experience increased requests for assistance, because children don’t benefit from free or reduced meals at school. We would like to help replenish their shelves! Please join us in this effort and bring a contribution to the May chapter meeting!
Items they can always use are dry hot and cold cereals, soup, canned meat and chili, peanut butter, jam or jelly, canned pasta meals (“Chef Boyardee”) canned fruit and vegetables, pasta and pasta sauce, juice and juice boxes, cereal and granola bars.
