BACC Women’s Biz Net Hosted “Christmas in July” Food Drive
During July the WBN reached out to BACC members and the community to help stock the shelves at the Barrington and Cuba Township food pantries. The response was well received, resulting in a variety of important items to help local families in need. From canned and boxed goods to paper products and household supplies, the WBN Council delivered the items on August 3, along with monetary donations totaling $500.
The Barrington Township food pantry is available to qualifying Barrington Township residents, many of whom are seniors on a fixed income. Donations of non-perishable food items are always appreciated. For more information, visit www.barringtontownship.com.
The Cuba Township food pantry is available to any Cuba Township resident in need. Items from the pantry are available once a month, and in the summer fresh produce pick-up is available weekly from local gardeners. For more information, visit cubatownship.com.
