The Vandalia Butler Food Pantry’s 2020 Annual Food Drive has officially started today! Unlike previous years, we are not able to have a large weekend gathering of several hundred people to pass out/collect/sort & count donated food items. Covid has deeply impacted our community in both terms of food needs and volunteer participation. For 2020, we have adopted an approach that prevents volunteers from being in danger of contracting or passing Covid but still allows the Vandalia Butler Food Pantry to accomplish our goal of fighting hunger in our community.
For the first time, we are asking that everyone supporting the Vandalia Butler Food Pantry participate through monetary donations. This is different from our previous years … but Covid prevents us from doing things like we did in the past. We are passing out flyers in door hanger bags that provide several options to support the food pantry. You can mail a check into the PO Box. You can drop a check off at the Vandalia water utility payment window. You can drop a check off at the Butler Township admin office reception window. We have even provided an envelope to enclose the check. For those who like things online, we have partnered with Paypal to allow donors to provide funds electronically.
Regardless of how you donate, we truly appreciate everything you do for the food pantry. 2020 has been a strange and trying year for everyone. Hopefully, you will find it within yourself to be able to donate to our 2020 food drive. Thank you for your support.
