Food and Blanket Drive to Benefit Local Food Pantry

Digital Ninjas Media, Inc., will be hosting its 3rd annual Food & Blanket Drive October 7 – 18, 2013. All donations will be given to Souls Harbor Food Pantry in Rockford.

SHFP was started in 2003. In 2012 they provided food to 5,177 people. Also available at the pantry are personal care items, paper goods, baby formula and diapers, vitamins, and cleaning products, as well as a clothing room, and access to the church’s outreach program to help with résumé and interview preparation, and job search assistance. The pantry runs 100% on volunteers.

Their wish list includes: clean new or used blankets, ramen noodles, peanut butter, canned food (soup, tuna, and fruit and vegetables, etc.), toilet paper, and personal care products.

Donation bins will be located at Bookworm Bakery & Café at 6685 East State Street, and Mary’s Market Café & Bakery at their 4431 East State Street and 1659 North Alpine/Edgebrook locations, during their normal hours of operation.
