food drive

From now through the end of December, the City of Dawsonville is holding a food donation drive to support local families through The Place of Dawson County and RIC-Rack. 

According to the donation drive flyer, the city is collecting several specific items to benefit the local nonprofit. The items requested for the drive include cereal, jelly, juice, dry pasta, pasta sauce and hygiene items. 

Any items donated can be dropped off at Dawsonville City Hall at 415 Highway 53 East. The drive is going on now through Dec. 23. 

Items donated will go to support Dawsonville families through local nonprofit The Place of Dawson County and RIC-Rack. According to the event flyer, the goal is to keep the food and donations collected in the local community to help support those in need of a little extra help. 

“We need you; donate food now for families in Dawsonville,” the flyer said. “What’s collected in Dawsonville stays in Dawsonville.”
