Wear orange, fasting for one meal and donating the cost of the meal, or collecting and donating food items for the Vermillion Food Pantry.

Announce youth coloring and drawing contest

Saturday, Oct 26      Collect donations in community

 

The food drive provides the food pantry with over 50 percent of their annual need, and this year’s need is greater than years past because of government cutbacks. Coyoteopoly requests the public’s help and support by wearing orange on Hunger Awareness Day, fasting for a meal and donating the cost, and leaving non-perishable food items out by 10 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 26.
