FFA Needs Food, Toys, Cash For Holiday Food Drive

Giving is down in Crothersville.
At least that seems to be the story as the contributions to the annual Crothersville FFA Toy & Food Drive are lower than previous years at this time.
“But there is still time to help make Christmas more merry for under-priviledged families in the community,” said local FFA Advisor Linda Begley. “The support of the community is needed financially for the program to sustain the high demand that we typically get.”
Donations of nonperishable food, new or gently used toys and financial contributions are being sought.
This year’s Crothersville FFA Toy & Food Drive, the 28th for the organization, will begin delivery at 9 a.m. on Saturday, December 17 beginning at 9:00 am.
“With the help of the Crothersville/Vernon Township Fire Department and community volunteers, members of the Crothersville FFA will be packing trucks and emergency vehicles with toys and food to deliver to those in need in our community this holiday season,” said Begley
Area residents can donate in their way of choosing at the school office between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m., or contact FFA Advisor, Linda Begley at 812-793-2051.
Residents who wish to submit a name of a Vernon Township family for delivery consideration, can use the above information to do so as well.
