The Weston-McEwen Lions Club will be accepting donated groceries at its food drive on Saturday at the Milton-Freewater Safeway, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
It's a statewide event but local donations -- from Safeway or elsewhere -- stay here at The Breadbasket in Milton-Freewater and the Athena Christian Church's Kitchen Cupboard, organizers say.
Most needed is forms of protein, such as canned tuna and other fish, as well as jars of peanut butter. Other suggested items include canned fruits and juice, detergent, tissues, soap and antibacterial cleaners.
Cash donations are also welcome. For more information call Peggy Sue at 541-566-2366.
