If you just can't participate at the food bank, the Salvation Army Can-A-Thon is another easy way to give back this holiday season! Details about the event and to SA website are below. If you drop off at one of the locations, please consider taking a selfie and sharing it with Shanon. We will be taking photos at our in person event and will be posting on our Facebook account. We would love a few photos from our can-a-thon participants to include as well:)
