Holiday Food Baskets donations sought


EATON — Donations are needed for the Preble Council County on Aging Holiday Food Baskets. Food and monetary donations are now being accepted for the annual Holiday Food Baskets. The baskets will be distributed to seniors in need on Thursday, Dec. 17.

Non-perishable items needed include: laundry soap, dish soap, napkins, canned goods to serve 1-2 people, and single-serve cereal packets such as oatmeal or cream of wheat. Please note that any donation will be appreciated. Last year we were able to provide 100 seniors with a Holiday Basket. Please help us increase that number this year.

Monetary donations are also requested. All monetary donations, up to $1,200, will be matched by Stephen Hamm, Elizabeth Smith, and Barbara Weadick, in memory of their parents, Joe and Hazel Hamm.

Applications are now being accepted for our annual Holiday Food Baskets. To qualify, applicants must be at 150 percent of the federal poverty guidelines. Income verification is required. Call 937-456-4947 for more information. The deadline for submitting an application is Tuesday, Dec. 1.

Bring all donations to the Preble County Senior Center, 800 East St. Clair Street, Eaton between the hours of 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
