Help make the holidays bright for area families in need this year by contributing to the Village of Wellington’s annual Hometown Holiday Food Drive.
Wellington’s goal is to see that no resident goes without a hot meal this Thanksgiving. Donations are being accepted through Friday, Nov. 16, and residents are asked to contribute items such as boxed mashed potatoes, boxed stuffing mix, cornbread mix, cranberry sauce, turkey gravy and canned green beans and corn.
All food donations will be distributed to residents on Nov. 17 from 9 a.m. to noon at the Wellington Community Center. Residents may register to receive food by calling the Community Services Department at (561) 791-4796, or stop by the department at 1092 Wellington Trace. Registration ends on Nov. 13.
Food may be dropped off at Village Hall, 12300 Forest Hill Blvd.; Village Park, 11700 Pierson Rd.; or the Wellington Community Center, 12150 Forest Hill Blvd.
Partnership opportunities are available as well. Those interested in partnering with the village for this drive should call Senior Program Coordinator Morgan Cintron at (561) 791-4102 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
