A local organization is looking for immediate help with non-perishable food items.
Bright Futures, the non-profit in Benton, helps students with their basic needs during the school year so they can focus on learning. But many kids need help in the summertime most, because they are not getting meals they wouldn’t normally get at school.
Volunteers with Bright Futures have been packing and distributing 700 meals once a week this summer so kids can get the nourishment they need. They have made a list of items you can donate as an individual or business or group. See that list below, along with places to drop off the donations.
Here are the items needed most:
Pop top Spagetti-0’s, Pop top Vienna Sausages, Peanut Butter Crackers, Cheese Crackers, Granola Bars, PopTarts, Oatmeal Cereal Cups, Muffins, Individual packs of Mac & Cheese.
Here’s where to drop off the items:
Access Control Devices Incorporated: ACDI, 403 North Main Street Benton, AR
Benton Public School Administration Office, 207 W Conway Street, Benton AR
First Baptist Church, 211 S Market St, Benton, AR
Fulks Family Dentistry, 3316 Arkansas Hwy 5, Bryant, AR
