Last year Crisis Food Center received thousands of pounds of food from various food drives in an effort to feed hungry residents in the Riverbend. The Rotary of the Riverbend is getting involved next weekend, hosting a pair of car wash / food drives at Alton auto body shops. The club's Anne Stotler says there will be collection boxes set up at Andy's Auto Body & Car Care on Broadway and at Woodman Collision Center on Alby Street.
The event will take place from 10am - 2pm on August 25 at both locations. If you cannot make it to either car wash but would like to help out, the Rotary of the Riverbend meets each Thursday at noon at Mac's Time Out Lounge. You are welcome to bring a can of food there, according to Stotler. You can also donate money straight to the Crisis Food Center. You can call them at 462-8201. This food drive will also benefit the Community Hope Center in Cottage Hills.
