No glass containers, please.

During the week prior to the Food Drive, banners and signs will be placed around town as a reminder of the upcoming food drive. Food donation barrels will be also be located at Lynn’s Dakota Mart, Grocery Mart, and the Sturgis Public Library.

Donations may be dropped at the Food Pantry on that date or anytime during hours of operation. The Food Pantry is open on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings from 9 a.m. to 11:45 a.m.
