Program to collect for food pantries

NEW HAVEN — The Dixwell/Newhallville Girl’s Mentoring Program will collect canned goods and non-perishable food items outside the Stetson library branch at the Dixwell Plaza beginning at 10 a.m. Saturday
Thelma Ragsdale, one of the program coordinators, said all donations will help support food pantries housed at Varick A.M.E. Zion Church and Macedonia Church of God.
This is the program’s second annual food drive. In addition to collecting donations, organizers will sell shawls, ponchos and other clothing and accessory items donated by Village of Power. A local artist will be donating original artwork that also may be purchased during the event.
A rain date is scheduled for Nov. 20.
For more information, call Ragsdale at 203-397-3533 or 203-676-6578.
