ZACHARY, LA (NBC33) — With the holidays fast approaching, the Zachary food pantry is asking for your help here at home.
The pack the pantry food drive is officially underway. You can drop off canned goods to be given out to families in need. The drive and other fund raising events will be going on the whole month of November.
Food pantry staff say Thanksgiving and Christmas are high demand seasons, so every donation helps.
"We even had one lady who shed tears because she was so appreciative of what we were able to do for her," said Zachary food pantry director, Reginald Dykes. "We depend on donations from the community."
The Zachary food pantry fed over seven hundred people last month. If you would like to donate, call 225-247-8859.
