Elks Christmas Basket Program, in conjunction with the Toys for Tots, is asking for help from the community to feed families in need.

Food drives will be today (Dec. 1) and Sunday, Dec. 2, at Fred Meyer in Brookings and Grocery Outlet in Harbor. Food donations needed include frozen turkeys; canned cranberries, sweet potatoes and fruit; cookies and candy canes.

Monetary, food, or unwrapped new toy donations can be dropped off at the Elk’s office at 800 Elk Drive in Brookings between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. weekdays.

Elks volunteers will pass out food baskets and Toys for Tots distributing toys from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. Dec. 15 in the Wisner Room in the lower level of the Elks Lodge.

Those who would like to help or have a question can call Sharon Hitzman at 541-412-8968 or 541-429-1382.
