Two ways to help stock FISH's pantry

October 30, 2013

Folks looking for a way to help feed local people in need will have a couple of opportunities to do so.

On Tuesday, Nov. 5, the Rochester Hills Skating & Sports Arena is offering free admission from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. to any and all elementary school students from the Oxford district who bring in three nonperishable food items.

All of the food will be donated to Oxford/Orion FISH.

Leonard Elementary Brownie Troop 74069 will be stocking the food from this event at FISH’s pantry in Thomas on Nov. 9.

The Oxford Meijer is offering folks another way to help keep FISH’s pantry shelves full for the holiday season.

From Nov. 3 through Jan. 4, 2014, Meijer will donate $10 for every $10 Simply Give donation made by customers at the Oxford store.

The Simply Give program encourages customers to purchase $10 Meijer food pantry donation cards, which are then converted into Meijer gift cards and given to the local pantry selected by the store.

The match at the Oxford store will be doubled on Nov. 15 and 16. That means for every $10 Simply Give donation made by customers during those two days, Meijer will add another $20 to it for FISH.
