UAW Local 2322 Canned Food Drive
UAW Local 2322 is sponsoring a food drive to help local pantries restock their shelves for the winter season. We encourage our members to donate whatever they can to this drive and help us support the needs of our communities. We will be collecting non-perishable food items in our Holyoke & UMass (GEO) offices until December 9th, and then we will send the donations to one or more local pantries where they can be the most help.
Even if you think you can’t give enough, remember that every bit helps. Our membership is over 3,200 strong, if we all were able to donate just one item think of how many families we could help.
Suggested food items:
- Canned fruit or vegetables
- Canned tuna or salmon-in water
- Baby food & powered formula
- Cereal (high fiber/low sugar)
- Fruit or Vegetable juice (100%)
- Soups, stews & chili
- Pancake/waffle mixes
- Pasta (dry or canned)
- Peanut butter
- Canned beans
- Diapers (child & Adult)
- Toilet & Facial tissue
