The Nolensville Food Pantry is in need of non-perishable food to be able to service the local families in need this holiday season and have some reserve for early 2014. Folks think about food drives a little more around holiday time but January and February can be cold, hard months. People have been graciously donating. The Pantry’s goal is 1,000 cans of food by the holidays. I believe they are up to 350 already.

There are multiple places around Nolensville with drop off boxes for this drive. The Nolensville Public Library has a bin. Animal House in the new Town Center has a bin. Peacock Lane and Coffee & Canvas are also drop off points. I received $5 off a $10+ purchase at Peacock Lane last Friday when I brought a bag of 5 non-perishable items. The Nolensville Dollar General has a bin at the cash register and all you have do is say, “I’d like to donate 1/2/3/+ items to the food pantry.” and the clerk will assist with selecting items from the bin. Items are scanned and go into the Food Pantry box. As always items may also be dropped to Mama’s Java or even directly to the Food Pantry at Providence Baptist Fellowship office on 1668 Sunset Road. Debbie Noland is your contact there and can also do pick ups if needed. You may reach her at 283-8197 with any questions.

Melissa at Mama’s Java presently has wish lists (needs) of over 60 local families. The due date for those items is 12/19. Junk King of Nashville is helping with a last push to get items for the families and the Food Pantry. On Sunday, December 15 from 11AM to 3PM one of the big, red, 18 cubic yard Junk King trucks will sit empty (and clean) in the parking lot of McDougal’s Chicken in Nolensville, TN to accept donations of non-perishable foods, new personal care items (like soap, toothpaste, shampoo, laundry detergent), and new, unwrapped toys.

After Brian at McDougal’s kindly allowed us space in his parking lot on the 15th he also said that folks dropping off donations of non-perishable food, personal care items, and new unwrapped toys would receive 10% off any purchases that day at that McDougal’s location.
