The Women’s Fund of the Blue Ridge is hosting a food drive called “Pack The Pantry” from now through December 17th.

The Watauga Democrat reports the drive is open seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. outside of First National Bank on Blowing Rock Road in Boone.

According to the report, the community is encouraged to fill the “Pack The Pantry” van outside of the bank with non-perishable foods.

All donated items will be taken to the Hunger and Health Coalition in Boone, the Ashe Sharing Center and Feeding Avery Families, to be distributed to families in need this winter in Ashe, Avery and Watauga Counties.
