The Surface Creek Community Services, known to most people in the community as the Cedaredge Food Bank, is again planning to provide Christmas dinners for the disadvantaged friends and neighbors in our community.
The food bank was blessed with a gracious community to assist with monetary funds to cover the expense of distributing over 215 boxes last year. Each box costs approximately $38. The food bank volunteers are asking the community to help meet this year's need.
The boxes are filled with a turkey or ham, potatoes, onions, fresh fruit, canned pumpkin, green beans, corn, sweet potatoes, dressing and butter.
All donations for the Christmas project should be made out to Surface Creek Community Services and specifically marked for the "Christmas Dinner Boxes."
The mailing address is:Surface Creek Community Services, PO Box 963, Cedaredge, CO 81413. The food bank phone number is 970-856-1125; email address is email@example.com.
No funds from the food bank's general operating account are used to support this annual project.
Distribution is planned Dec. 16 starting at 11 a.m. Anyone wishing to volunteer to pack or distribute Christmas boxes is urged to call 856-1125.
The food bank is located at 245 W. Main, behind the town offices.
