Share the Love Food Drive during February in Sublette County
Helping those in need in the community
February 16, 2017
Sublette County 4-H Clubs from across the county are putting out boxes to help collect items for local food banks during February. Each year, the 4-H program junior leaders work to collect items to assist local food banks in meeting the demands of people in need in the community.
Marbleton and Big Piney collection boxes:
Big Piney Post Office
Bank of the West
Southwest Sublette County Pioneers Senior Center
Big Piney Library
Loaf and Jug
Big Piney Rec Center
Pinedale collection boxes:
Pinedale High School
Pinedale Elementary School
New collection box locations are being added daily.
Please consider helping the 4-H program collect items to assist community members in need. According to the Big Piney Food Closet, there are currently about 45 families that rely on donations. In Pinedale, there currently are about 71 families (218 people with 70% being kids) that rely on donations. Of those people, about 15-20% are retired members of the community with too little income to make ends meet. Additionally, about 70% of the Food Basket patrons have at least one family member who is employed.
Items needed most are non-perishable and non-expired food items, paper products such as paper towels and toilet tissue, and personal hygiene items such as soaps, shampoos and toothpaste.
