An unfilled box at Fire Station 1 is one of six that members
of the Bloomington Fire Department are hoping community members will help fill
with non-perishable food items during the “Heroes Helping Hoosiers,” holiday
food drive, which goes until the 16th of December. The drive is part
of an effort to help local residents fight hunger.
Boxes are located at the following locations:
City Hall – 401 North Morton
Station 1 – 300 East 4th Street
Station 2 – 209 South Fairfield Drive
Station 3 – 900 North Woodlawn Ave.
Station 4 – 2201 East 3rd Street
Station 5 – 1987 South Henderson St.
Bloomington Fire Department Captain Max Litwin said
donations will be delivered on the 16th, so he hopes community
members will drop off items by the 15th.
“While the holidays are a joyful time for many of us, some
families and individuals in our community are unable to enjoy it because they
are facing hunger,” said Litwin. “Through this food drive, we can share the
spirit of the season with a few more of our neighbors.”
According to a press release from the city items will be
shared with the following agencies: “Monroe County United Ministries,
Backpack Buddies (Community Kitchen), College Square Pantry, New Hope Family
Shelters, and the Shalom Community Center.”
