(Neb)-United Way Food Drive Running Through Thursday Listen
CHADRON - There's just 3 days left in the United Way of Western Nebraska serving Dawes County's "Love Your Neighbor" food drive.
The second-annual event, which started the first of the month, benefits two local food pantries: Shepherd's Pantry and Northwest Community Action Partnership.
United Way director Karen Benzel says the drive is held in February to tie in with Valentine's Day and because this is a very busy time of year for food pantries.
Benzel says donations so far have been generous, but more can always be used.
There are 5 drop-off sites: Bauerkemper's (1080 W. Highway 20), Butler Ag Equipment (6080 US 20), City of Chadron (234 Main St.) First National Bank North Platte (315 West 3rd), and Chadrad Communications (226 Bordeaux).
