Thank you to everyone who contributed to the success of the 2018 Blessings in a Backpack Thanksgiving Food Basket Program. We were able to feed 21 families using the food that was donated, the financial support and the help of many volunteers.

Throughout the year leading up to the food basket program, Donation Station has metal recycling collection weekends which help keep metal from ending up in landfills, helps de-clutter basements, garages, back yards etc., and contributes to the financial needs of the Thanksgiving Food Basket Program.

The metal collection will be held at Water’s Edge United Methodist Church at 18732 Harbor Country Drive, New Buffalo and collection days will be Saturday and Sunday, April 27th and 28th (rain or shine). Larry Shead will be in the parking lot from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. EST to help with unloading on Saturday and from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. EST on Sunday. If you want to drop off items before or after those times, feel free to do so at your convenience. If you need a pick-up of larger items (garden tractors, appliances, vehicles, etc.) please arrange for that with Larry, by texting him at 574-309-2370.

Please tell your friends, neighbors, relatives and employers about the Thanksgiving Food Basket Program as we want to expand (double) the number of families that we assist in 2019.

Donation Station is looking for 3 to 4 new commercial clients to add to the two businesses already saving and donating their metal, along with the dozen or more individuals who are saving their metal and bringing it in throughout the year.

Thank you for your continued support!
