Saratoga Springs — The Saratoga Springs Lions Club is holding their annual "Because Hunger Doesn't End with the Holiday's" food drive on Saturday, January 18 from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. at four different locations throughout Saratoga Springs and Wilton. The club will be collecting non-perishable food items to be donated to seven different food pantries in the greater Saratoga Springs area. The club partners with the Golub and Hannaford Corporations to hold this event. The four collection locations will be at:
• Hannaford on Weibel Avenue
• Price Chopper on Railroad Place
• Market 32 by Price Chopper on Ballston Avenue
• Market 32 by Price Chopper on Route 50 (Wilton)
The donated items will be assisting the Franklin Community Center Pantry, Wilton Food Pantry, St. Clement’s Church Pantry, Saratoga EOC, New England Congregation Presbyterian Church, Salvation Army Pantry, and Shelters of Saratoga. Last year the club collected a record amount of approximately 7,500 pounds of food to support the pantries. Monetary donations of $346 were donated to the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York, which further supports all the pantries throughout the region.
