ANNUAL ‘FOOD’RAISER & TOYS FOR TOTS CAMPAIGN at TOTMAN’S
HUNGER IS NOT ALWAYS VISIBLE
1 Entry per food or toy item donated into drawing for FREE Standard Oil Change*
NOTE: TOYS FOR TOTS campaign ends Tuesday, December 13. Please get donations in before then. Thank you!
The mission is to collect as much food and toys as possible between now and the New Year to help avert as much hunger in the community as possible. Times are tough. Making those times a bit easier is the goal of the Totmans’.
Though it might not always be visible, hunger is here. It is everywhere. Some are too proud, or private, to say they need help. There are people in Waldo County in the position of having to choose between fuel, home payments or food.
At Totman’s they believe everyone has a responsibility to help where they can. “This year’s challenge to the community is to raise not only non-perishable food, but also much-needed essentials such as shampoo, toiletries, laundry detergent, feminine hygiene products, cleaning products and such that cannot be purchased with food stamps and are not typically available through food pantries,” shares Susan Totman. All donations will be distributed locally via the Crossroads Food Pantry (also the local Salvation Army Service unit).
Totman’s is also an official Toys for Tots dropoff location. Toy donations may be dropped off at Totman’s now through Tuesday, December 13, while food and essential donations can be dropped off through Friday, December 30. Dropoff hours are regular business hours, Mon-Fri, 8:30 am to 5:00 pm. The address is 369 Augusta Road, Belmont.
If you, your family or someone you know are in need they provide perishable and non-perishable food items as well as a variety of home essentials to help supplement the needs of local families. They are open weekly every Wednesday evening 5-6 pm and monthly on the 2nd Saturday 8-10 am. Crossroads is located at 1106 Augusta Road, Morrill. Pantry phone number is (207) 342-4044.
