Bring canned and packaged food to the annual Circle of Lights Celebration downtown on Monument Circle on 11/29 for collection by 40,000 Pounds of Giving for veterans at HVAF. HVAF staffers will be along the Circle to collect your canned food donation. You can also make a monetary donation to HVAF.
“We’re encouraging all Hoosiers to show up with canned goods,” said Carl Denny organizer of 40,000 Pounds of Giving.
People who drop off donations don’t even have to get out of their cars. HVAF vans will be set up along the Circle. Donations will be used to stock the shelves of the HVAF food pantry which helps feed homeless veterans who turn to HVAF for a warm meal.
“We’re serving 3 meals each day and providing canned food for an additional 200 homeless veterans through our outreach efforts. This is a busy time of year,” says VP of Marketing Debra Des Vignes.
“Get into the holiday spirit and donate a few cans of food and help those who served us,” Denny adds.
You can donate during the Circle of Lights Celebration on Friday, November 29 from 6-8 p.m.
