Farris Funeral Service to Host Giving Tree and Food Drive
November 27, 2017 @ 8:30 am - December 20, 2017 @ 5:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 8:30am on Sunday, Monday and Friday, repeating until December 20, 2017
Farris Funeral Service & Crematory is taking action against hunger in the community by hosting a Christmas Giving Tree and Community Food Drive.
“We know there are many individuals whose resources are spread thin in our community, especially during the holiday season,” says Kim Farris-Luke, president and owner of Abingdon-based Farris Funeral Service & Crematory. “We love being a part of this community, and are always looking for ways we can volunteer our time and resources to make a positive impact on the lives of others.”
Residents of Washington County and surrounding areas who want to participate are asked to donate a non-perishable canned food item or jar of peanut butter during the food drive. Donations will be accepted Monday, Nov. 27 through Wednesday, Dec. 20, and may be placed under the Christmas tree in the lobby of the Main Street Chapel, located at 427 East Main St. in Abingdon, Virginia, from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Sunday.
All collected donations will be distributed by Ecumenical Faith in Action, a nonprofit organization located in Abingdon that provides food, medical and financial assistance, and counseling to more than 1,350 individuals each month.
