As winter approaches, demand at local food pantries is high.  The Human Services Committee is requesting that voters bring non-perishable food donations with them to the polls.  Canned soup, vegetables and fruit, tuna, spaghetti and peanut butter are all needed items. The pantries also needs toilet paper, paper towels and hand soap.

Committee members will deliver the Election Day donations to the pantries the following morning.
