Holiday Food Drive Drop Off Can Goods at Bedford Fire Stations

You can help restock community food pantries during the months of November and December. As tough economic times force families to rely heavily on food pantries to meet their nutritional needs, our local pantries struggle to keep food on their shelves and keep up with demand. One or two cans of food will gratefully be accepted, but if you want to drop off a sack, box, or pallet of food, we can help you unload. Please visit one of your three fire stations listed below to drop off can goods and non-perishable food items. Your donation will help feed many families benefiting the Northeast Emergency Distribution (N.E.E.D. in the H.E.B. area) and the Tarrant Area Food Bank during the holiday season.

Drop-Off Locations:
Central Fire Station – 1816 Bedford Road
Fire Station # 2 – 3940 Martin Drive
Fire Station # 3 – 541 Bedford Road

Drop-Off Dates and Times:
November through December 31, 2011 between the hours of 7 A.M. and 7 P.M (daily)

FROZEN TURKEY DAY
Tuesday, November 22, 2011 between the hours of 7 A.M. and 2 P.M. we will take frozen turkeys. Turkey Day is for ONE-DAY-ONLY at the Central Fire Station.
