The Gardner Edgerton Republican Party is more than just a political group. We are a Community group. In the last three years the group has collected over 6000 pounds of food for the local food pantries and supported other organizations like Safe Home. We are proud to be a part of Gardner and Edgerton communities and look forward to serving them in the future. The summer food drive is an important function to aid families at a time of the year when children are out of school.
The 4th Annual Food Drive is going to be bigger and better than ever. We have set a goal of 4000 lbs.(Two TONS) of non-perishable food for our two local pantries. Our group member will have a booth at the Festival on the Trails for donations and we will also be taking donations in front of Price Chopper starting on the 8th of June.
Gardner Price Chopper collection point:
4:00pm to 7:00pm Wednesday thru Friday and Saturday from 10:00am to 6:00pm
Festival on the Trails booth collection point:
Friday 5:00pm to 7:00pm and Saturday from 10:00am to 7:00pm
Help us fill the local pantries. All donations stay right here in Gardner and Edgerton. Cash donations will be used to purchase additional food.
NOTE: Both community pantries have brought to our attention the fact that food stamps will not cover personal care items such as toothpaste, toilet paper, laundry soap and all other personal hygiene products.
