Event Details

The Washington Council of Congregations (WCOC) will hold its third Drive-Thru Food Drive on Saturday, August 22nd, from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM, at the First Congregational Church of Washington (on the Green, across from the Gunn Library). Donors are asked to remain in their cars while volunteers (wearing gloves and masks) remove contributions from their vehicle backseats or trunks.

Donated items should include shelf-stable food (in boxes and cans, unexpired please), personal care and household cleaning items.  Monetary donations (checks and cash) will also be welcome. Checks should be made payable to the Greater Washington Coalition for Jewish Life, the organizer of this month’s food drive on behalf of WCOC.  All proceeds will benefit the Washington-Warren and New Milford Food Banks. The food banks have experienced an increase in need since the spread of Covid-19. The WCOC encourages our community to give generously to help our neighbors in need.
