Towanda Elks sponsoring a food drive for seniors

Members of the Towanda Elks Club are hoping to “Pack the Bus” for local older adults in need through their annual food drive. Their partner in this effort, the Bradford, Sullivan, Susquehanna, and Tioga Counties Area Agency on Aging, will distribute the items collected. Non-perishable food items can be dropped off during normal club hours from 3 to 8 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday at the Towanda Elks Lodge located at 929 S. Main St. in Towanda. The Elks will hold their monthly breakfast buffet on Oct. 20 and donations can be dropped off between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. The Elks Turkey Dinner will be held on Nov. 3 and donations can be dropped off between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. Attendees are encouraged to bring donations to the breakfast buffet or turkey dinner to receive a discount.
