“The Food Drive” in Mishawaka set to help many families in the community

MISHAWAKA, Ind. – School City of Mishawaka is taking care of its own with the help of a food drive this weekend.

“The Food Drive” was started in 1980 by a Mishawaka High School teacher and over the years has aided many families in the community.

The drive will serve approximately 110 families this holiday season, all of whom have children attending Mishawaka Schools.

Donations for the drive were organized at a make-shift grocery store in the Mishawaka High School Cafeteria on Friday.

Volunteers worked from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. to collect items like toiletries, food, and other household items for those in need.

Lists were then made for things still needed and volunteers went out to buy them until all the items needed were bought.

On Saturday, families will come to pick up the items collected by volunteers starting at 8 a.m.
