The Village of Wellington’s annual Hometown Holiday Food Drive is now underway, and residents are encouraged to contribute items for families less fortunate.
Donations are being accepted through Tuesday, Nov. 19. Residents are asked to contribute items such as boxed mashed potatoes, boxed stuffing mix, cornbread mix, cranberry sauce, turkey gravy and canned vegetables such as green beans and corn.
Residents may register to receive food by calling the Community Services Department at (561) 791-4796, or at their local house of worship. Requests must be made prior to Nov. 19.
Donated items 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.
Those interested in partnering with the village for the drive should call Program Coordinator Kyle Ostroff at (561) 791-4764 for more information.
