POMEROY — Reed and Baur Insurance Agency is asking people to “Give a Helping Hand During the Holidays” by donating non-perishable items to their food drive now through Dec. 16.

The collected items will be distributed throughout the area to help families in need during the holiday season.

Items received from the beginning of the drive Nov. 4 to Nov. 11 will be donated to the Veterans Outreach Thanksgiving Dinner.

The Veterans Outreach in Pomeroy is planning a Thanksgiving Day dinner for veterans and their families. The center will open at 9 a.m. for coffee and doughnuts while guests watch the Thanksgiving Day parades. A full turkey dinner will be served at noon and guests are encouraged to stay to watch football games.

Items collected by the food drive after Nov. 11 will be donated to the Mulberry Community Center for their Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners.

The agency is collecting food items locally at their office at 220 E. Main St., Pomeroy. They are also accepting donations at their Athens office at 2097 E. State St., which will be donated to The Salvation Army. Donations made in the Logan office at 111 E. Second St. will go the the Smith Chapel Food Pantry.
