‘Can’vass Food Drive will go on, but plans are in place in case of snow emergency

Paul Valdez, associate director of BGSU Center for Community and Civic Engagement has issued the following statement:

The winter storm this weekend is likely to impact the Annual MLK Jr. Day “Can”vass Food Drive in Bowling Green on January 19 and 20, 2019.  Organizers expect to operate the event as planned and will collect food at Grounds for Thought during the snowfall, but if a Level 2 snow emergency is issued volunteers and donors are requested to remain off the roads and encouraged to drop off donations at the Brown Bag Food Project Monday, Wednesday, or Friday between 5-8 pm at 115 West Merry Avenue, Suite B in Bowling Green.  Questions can be directed to brownbagfoodproject@gmail.com.  Please check the Brown Bag Food Project Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/brownbagfoodproject/  for updates.

If the drive is canceled Saturday because of a Level 2 snow emergency, but that is lifted on Sunday, the food drive will resume.
