Basehor Youth PRIDE collecting food for local families in need during the holidays
The Basehor Youth PRIDE organization has initiated a project to collect food for the needy in the area.
The non-perishable food items will be collected the first Saturday of each month in conjunction with the monthly recycling project.
PRIDE and Youth PRIDE requests that each family that brings items to be recycled to the city hall parking lot also bring two or more food items.
The food will be given to BLAS, (Basehor-Linwood Assistance Services) for distribution to needy families before Christmas.
Youth PRIDE plans to make this food collection a continuing community service project with collections scheduled every month to coincide with the first Saturday recycling starting Saturday, Dec. 6.
