MARQUETTE, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – A major food drive is being completed this weekend in Western Marquette County.
“Project Food For A Neighbor” is coordinated by Wesley United Methodist Church in Ishpeming and St. Paul’s Catholic Church in Negaunee and will benefit the food pantries of the Salvation Army and St. Vincent dePaul stores in Ishpeming and Negaunee.
Drive organizer Dick Derby joined the SUNNY Morning Show with Walt & Mike this morning to recap the overall event.
Derby says the drive kicked off last Saturday morning with the distribution of thousands of shopping bags in Negaunee, Ishpeming and West Ishpeming. The bags included a message attached explaining the food drive and what items are being collected.
Those bags will then be picked up by the same volunteers tomorrow from 10am to Noon.
