To The Editor:
I’m writing to ask our Norwalk voters to donate generously to the 5th Annual Norwalk Election Day Food Drive.
When you go to the polls on Tuesday, please bring a non-perishable food item for donation to our local pantries, this year to The Christian Community Action Family Food Pantry in Norwalk. This charitable organization provides local families with approximately 200,000 meals per year. The need is greater than ever due to the recent hurricane, and many would be surprised to know their own neighbors and co-workers visit our pantries weekly.
Colorful, patriotic boxes can be found inside the polling sites, just before you enter to vote. Most needed items are canned tuna, canned soups and fruits, peanut butter and jelly, boxed macaroni and cheese, pasta and spaghetti sauce, healthy snacks and cereals (please, no soda).
Also, we’re always looking for more volunteers to help, as there are over a dozen polling sites in the city and there is a lot of food to be picked up during the day and when the polls close at night.
If you’d like to volunteer, or for more information, contact Diane at 854-6930.
Thanks in advance for your generosity this year – your support will help us stock the pantry following Hurricane Sandy and in time for the upcoming holidays.
Cast a vote of compassion when you go to the polls and send the message from Norwalk voters again this year: “We know, we care, we help.”
