The White Pine Ministerial Association’s (WPMA) annual food drive has begun at Ridley’s. By purchasing $5 bags of food and placing them in the barrels provided you are supporting the WPMA’s Community Food Bank.

You may be wondering what actually happens with the food in those bags. The food you donate helps keep food available for people who come to The WPMA’s Community Food Bank located at 371 Clark Street which is open year round on Monday’s from 1-2 p.m. and Thursday’s from 4:30-6:30 p.m. It is also used to provide Thanksgiving food boxes to people throughout White Pine County who would otherwise go without a Thanksgiving meal.

The White Pine Ministerial Association thanks everyone who has given so generously in the past and looks forward to receiving your support again this year. Together we can keep hunger from being a reality for the people of our community.
