Marysville All-City Food Drive starts Nov. 3

MARYSVILLE — Volunteers will kick off the Marysville All-City Food Drive on Saturday, Nov. 3, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., to help neighbors in need this holiday season by collecting donations of money, food and unused toys.

Volunteers from the city of Marysville, Marysville Fire District, Kiwanis and Lions clubs, Soroptimist International, Lakewood High School, Girl Scouts and other local youth groups will collect donations at various participating local grocers and retail stores.

Hundreds of families have already registered to receive holiday baskets, and community support is the key to making the holidays bright for our local families, according to Marysville Community Food Bank officials.

Volunteers will be located at the Fred Meyer, Albertsons, Grocery Outlet, Haggen, IGA and Safeway stores in Marysville and Smokey Point. Red barrels will be placed throughout the Marysville community starting Nov. 3 and will continue collecting food and toys throughout the holiday season. Donations can also be dropped off at the Marysville Community Food Bank, located at 4150 80th St. NE, behind St. Mary’s Catholic Church.
