Old Lyme PD’s Thanksgiving Food Drive Continues Today

Sorting the food donated during the Food Drive is a Herculean task organized by LYSB Director Mary Seidner (center) in photo and assisted by Leslie Massa (right) and Arleen Sharp (left). File photo by B. Groth.

Old Lyme Police Officers will hold their annual Thanksgiving Food Drive on three dates starting Saturday at the Old Lyme Marketplace near the Big Y. The dates and times are as follows:

Wednesday, Nov.  18, from 3 to 7 p.m.

Saturday, Nov. 21, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

All food donated will be forwarded to the Lymes’ Youth Service Bureau (LYSB) for distribution to families in need.

Food will also be given to stock the mini-pantries at Lymes’ Senior Center and the Town of Old Lyme Social Services.

After local needs are met, all remaining food is given to Shoreline Soup Kitchens.

Families in need of food should contact LYSB at www.lysb.org/holidaygiving or 860-434-7208.
