Food For Families
Council: 680 - MILLINOCKET
This year, Council 680, organized and completed 2 food drives to benefit the St. Martin of Tours Catholic Church Food Pantry. This was done to comply with the Leave No Neighbor Behind initiative from the Knights of Columbus. On October 26h, the Council collected 1200 pounds of food and on the 3rd-5th of December another food drive associated with the Millinocket Marathon yielded 2900 pounds of food and 300 dollars in cash collected. Participants in the Marathon were asked to bring food to donate to the food drive in lieu of a registration fee. The result resulted in a record in food collection for the St. Martin of Tours Food Pantry but also resulted in several bags of clothes donated to the St. Martin of Tours Thrift Store and several boxes of donated toys for the local fire department’s Toys for Tots program.
