Tis the season to be giving

By Stephanie Ashcraft

To support Tabitha’s Way food bank and Toys for Tots, Hometown Healthcare, located next to ZuWire Fitness in Salem, will be hosting a Community Food and Toy Drive from now until December 15th.

Tabitha’s Way collects approximately 2 million pounds annually from community food drives that are often coordinated statewide with local agencies.

Tabitha’s Way requests that food donations meet the following criteria:
All natural ingredients
Low sodium
Low sugar
No high fructose corn syrup

Most needed food items:
Peanut Butter
Mac & Cheese
Canned Meats (tuna, chicken or beef)
Chili
SpaghettiOs/Ravioli
Canned Fruits
Other Boxed Meals

The mission of the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community in which the campaign is conducted. The primary goal of Toys for Tots is to deliver, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens.

Food and toys can be dropped off anytime during business hours:
Monday 8:30-5:30 pm
Tuesday 8:30-5:30
Wednesday 8:30-7:00 pm
Thursday 8:30-5:30 pm
Friday 8:30-3:00 pm
Closed for Lunch M-TH from 1:30-2:30

Hometown Healthcare is located at 591 N State Road 198 in Salem, Utah.
