About this event

The Monroe County Democratic Executive Committee is participating in this year’s National Day of Service for the Inauguration of President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Harris. In celebration of the spirit and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., we are partnering with the Presidential Inaugural Committee to host a food drive to benefit the food distribution programs of Monroe County on Monday, January 18th. The drive will be held at two separate locations in the county, and we welcome fellow Monroe Countians along with friends from neighboring counties to join us.

People can participate in the drive by dropping off contributions at the United Methodist Church fellowship building in Sardis or at the Lewisville Community Center in Lewisville from 9:30 am. to 2:30 p.m. on Monday. All contributions (food, nonperishables, and monetary donations) will go directly to each location’s food pantry program.

Curbside drop-off will be available at each site and is encouraged. Social distancing and face coverings will be required per CDC guidelines.
