Getting a head start on Thanksgiving grocery shopping?
You can help local families in need by picking up a few extra items this week.
The Westlake Assistance Program is holding a city-wide food drive through Nov. 16 to help fill the food cupboard so everyone in need in Westlake can have good holiday meals.
Items needed include canned fruit and vegetables, canned or jarred gravy, stuffing, cranberry sauce, potatoes, yams/sweet potatoes, chicken, turkey, canned meat, spaghetti sauce, peanut butter, jelly, soup, pasta, cake mix and any other non-perishable food item.
You can drop off donations at Westlake Recreation Center, Westlake Police Department, Westlake Porter Public Library and the Westlake Center for Community Services.
Receipts are available for tax purporses.
For more information on how you can help, as well as information on the Adopt-a-Family program, call 440-899-3544.
