Edge FCU to Hold Food Drive for New LHS Food Pantry

Wednesday, November 14, 2018 -

Each year, the Liverpool High School School-Wide Student Graphic of a food drive collection.Council organizes a “Penny War” fund-raiser to benefit a local non-profit organization, with Edge Federal Credit Union matching the school’s donation (up to $250).

This year, proceeds from the Penny War will benefit a new initiative at LHS – a food pantry.

In addition to its matching donation, Edge is holding a food and toiletry drive for the pantry. Those visiting the Edge FCU office (located at 7545 Morgan Road) can drop off items from the pantry’s wish list:
