WAPAKONETA - The United Way of Auglaize County will accept food donations Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon for local food pantries.

For many families in Auglaize County, hunger is a year-round problem. Unfortunately, the food pantries that many of these families rely on receive most of their donations around the holidays making the summer months even more challenging.
This summer the United Way asks for residents to take the spirit of giving felt at Christmas and share it in July to help lessen the burden of Auglaize County families.
For information or to make a donation please contact our office at 419-739-7717 or visit our website at http://auglaizeunitedway.org.
