Watertown Community Cares Food Drive

Watertown Community Cares drive thru, no contact non-perishable food drive this Friday April 24th , 2020 at the Boys & Girls Club from 8AM to 6PM.  Non-perishable Food Drive Items Needed:

Mac & Cheese, Boxed Dinners (Hamburger/Tuna Helper, Instant Noodles & Rice), Instant Potatoes, Canned Vegetables, Canned Tuna & Chicken, Cereal, Pasta, Pasta Sauce, Pork & Beans, Peanut Butter, Crackers, Soup, Canned Fruit/Applesauce, and Spaghettios/Ravioli.

For the last four weeks, WCC has served almost 5800 individuals with a weekly food box giveaway during the Covid19 crisis. These boxes contain a variety of items including meat, fresh produce, dairy, eggs and canned goods. WCC partnered from the beginning with Feeding South Dakota (FSD) to provide the weekly food boxes. Feeding South Dakota continues to provide support to WCC however; due to demand, FSD has limited how often we can purchase food from them. WCC wishes to continue providing weekly food boxes, but will need the support of our community to make it possible. Over 40 WCC volunteers assemble and pack between 500 and 600 boxes for anyone in need every week in under one hour. These volunteers come from all different backgrounds including retired, working, and individuals to recently themselves were laid off or let go from their own jobs due to the crisis.

Without this and future food drives WCC will not be able to provide weekly food boxes for our community.

Financial contributions can made online at GoFundMe.com search “Watertown Community Cares” or mailed to the Salvation Army 621 4 th St SE, Watertown SD 57201. Please include WCC in the memo line.
