Every community has families that can use a little help in providing food for their family members. This year with the help of a live remote from KVAL, we collected 1,589 lbs. of food along with more than $1,000 in cash that was donated to Junction City Local Aid. We also embarked on a Facebook campaign in December donating one dollar for each person who “liked” us during set dates in December. Through our rich social community, we were able to continue our support of this fine organization.
If you have friends or family that could use some help with groceries, Junction City Local Aid is a fantastic asset to our community. Established in 1945, this organization is open Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm. They provide monthly emergency food boxes and also assist with weekly staples like cereal and rice. You can reach them by calling 541-998-3992, or stop by their office at 265 W. 6th, across from U.S. Bank.
