Food Drive at King Kullen This Sunday

The Middle Island Civic Association will conduct a FOOD DRIVE this Sunday, December 2nd,  from 10:00 am – 3:00pm at the Middle Island King Kullen on Middle Country Road.  We will distribute fliers to interested shoppers as they enter the store, and then collect any donated items as they leave.  Volunteers are needed and welcome.  Dress warmly as we will be outside for much of the time.  No one will need to stay for all five hours if we have enough coverage. If you’re able to volunteer for the Food  Drive on Sunday, or the delivering later, please contact  Tom at 924-5793  or email   or  Gail at 732-4529 or e-mail

And for those of you who will be shopping , here is the flier text:
