Posted on 12/11/2019

Dec. 11, 2019 UPDATE: Special delivery from the Coal Creek Family YMCA (pictured here). Thanks to the generous contributions from the Y, we've hit (and exceeded‼) our goal to fill five boxes for the Newcastle community food drive. We're not done yet, though! Continue to bring your donations of non-perishable food to Newcastle City Hall through Dec. 17!

Dec. 10, 2019 UPDATE
: Two boxes down, three to go. We need your help, Newcastle! Our goal is to pack a minimum of five boxes for our community food drive. We've got just a week left.

You can make a difference for families in need in the Newcastle area this holiday season! Join the cause and support the City of Newcastle's community food drive benefiting Northwest Harvest. Northwest Harvest requests shelf-stable foods that are low in sodium, sugar, and saturated fats.
