U Can Share Food and Fund Drive - Newschannel 6 Now | Wichita Falls, TX

U Can Share Food and Fund Drive

The "U Can Share Food Drive" will take place at the United Supermarkets in Burkburnett, Graham and Wichita Falls and Market Street in Wichita Falls from November 4th through November 15th. 

United Supermarkets are encouraging their customers to help those less fortunate by dropping off their food donations in the Bins located in their lobbies. Groceries collected through this food drive will help fortify the supplies in the Wichita Falls Area Food Bank.

Each store will have Red Can Donation Cards at their check out station.  The checker will ask their customers if they would like to participate in the U Can Share Fund Drive by making a donation of $1.  The checker will scan the bar code and $1 would be added to their bill.  The customer will write his/her name on the donation card and will be display on a wall, counter or window to acknowledge their support of the Wichita Falls Area Food Bank.  The proceeds from the U Can Share Red Can Donation Cards will go to the Food Bank's general funds.

Also The Wichita Falls Area Food Bank, University Kiwanis Club and Cryovac are co-sponsoring the Annual School Food Drive "Students Against Hunger" on November 4th- thru November 15th.

Collection boxes and sacks for students to take home have been delivered by volunteers directly to the schools.  The plastic bags donated by Cryovac, have a stamped letter to the parents asking for their help by filling the bag with food from their pantry.

Groceries collected through this November school drive will help fortify the supplies of our member agencies as a great number of Christmas baskets and emergency boxes are anticipated.

A "special plaque" will be awarded to the facility with the greatest per capita contribution in three categories: the Wichita Falls Independent School District, the Private and Parochial Schools, and the Pre-Schools, Kindergarten and Day Care Centers.
