The Henderson Rotary Club is sponsoring a food pantry drive for the local Salvation Army during the annual observation of the Rotary Day of Service. The event will be held on Saturday, April 17 at the Henderson Salvation Army, 2292 Ross Mill Rd.
From 9 a.m. to noon, the public is invited and encouraged to bring items like bottled water, cleaning supplies, health-care items, canned foods, toilet paper and other shelf-stable food items, according to Brad Baldwin, president of the Henderson club.
All Rotary clubs in District 7710 are participating in some type of community service project on April 17, and the local club chose the Salvation Army to partner with.
“The Rotary Club of Henderson felt that partnering with the Salvation Army was an ideal way to serve the community,” Baldwin said. “This has been a difficult year for many folks in our area and this is an opportunity to assist those in need. Our goal is to have widespread participation from the people of Henderson in donating items that the Salvation Army needs for their food pantry,” he added.
Baldwin said club members will be on site at the Salvation Army to accept donations. “We thank the folks of Henderson for their support and thank the Salvation Army for the work they do in our community,” Baldwin said.
Cash and check donations also will be accepted.
