Nonperishable food donations for the Middletown Community Thanksgiving Project will be collected at two simultaneous Fill-A-Bus events Saturday, Nov. 2 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Stop & Shop and Price Chopper in Middletown.
The Middletown Community Thanksgiving Project was established four years ago to ensure that all Middletown families who are struggling can still enjoy a Thanksgiving feast. The Middletown Community Thanksgiving Project will assemble more than 950 baskets of food this Thanksgiving.
A list of items needed will be available at the store during the collection times.
Monetary donations are being accepted to purchase necessary food and non-food items essential to this effort. If you wish to contribute, checks can be made out to “Rotary-MCTP” and sent to MCTP, c/o Fellowship Church, 1002 Saybrook Rd., Middletown, CT 06457.
