A food drive is currently underway at Fairmount until Monday, December 13. The collected food and pantry items will be donated to two local organizations: Northeastern Lancaster County Food Bank in Terre Hill and Hello Charity in Denver. These are both smaller food banks serving local communities.

Tables for food collection are set up in the Wheat Ridge lobby, on the west side of the Fairmount campus. Local community residents may drop off unexpired, nonperishable food items and paper goods just inside the first set of doors. Donations most needed at this time are: juices and syrups; canned fruits, soups, beans, meats and vegetables; cereals, condiments, peanut butter, jelly, and paper goods. Please bring nonperishable, unexpired items only. Both organizations assist local families in need, so please spread the word—and thank you for helping our local community residents in this way.
