NORTH LIBERTY– The North Liberty Community Pantry (NLCP) invites local businesses to participate in Thanksgiving in July.
The last two years, local financial institutions held food drives and competed for a traveling turkey trophy, awarded in 2011 to Hills Bank & Trust for amassing the most contributions. In total, the North Liberty Community Pantry received the equivalent of more than 10,000 pounds of food in July 2011.
This year the NLCP is opening the invitation to all businesses to compete in the Thanksgiving in July event.
Businesses can still sign-up. Updates will be made throughout July on the facebook page at www.facebook.com/NorthLibertyCommunityPantry , and participating businesses can be found on the pantry’s web page: www.northlibertycommunitypantry.org . Thanksgiving in July 2012 sponsors include Alphagraphics, Corridor Kids, Hawkeye Food Service, K9s with Class, Revisit, Tubrosa Pizza and University of Iowa Health Care.
Community drop-off locations are at the North Liberty city offices and Recreation Center. Please support your community and contribute to Thanksgiving in July. Help local businesses to win the traveling turkey trophy to display during the next year.
