Clayton Teaming Up with Operation Food Search for Ferguson Families in Need
CLAYTON, Mo. – The city of Clayton as well as the School District of Clayton are partnering with Operation Food Search to help families in need in Ferguson and surrounding communities, according to a news release.
Officials with Operation Food Search say the economic impact of the unrest in Ferguson has meant increased demand in recent weeks at area food banks.
The city and school district are hosting a food drive from Monday through Sept. 9.
Community members may drop off non-perishable food items and toiletries at two Clayton locations: City hall at 10 N. Bemiston, and the Center of Clayton at 50 Gay Ave. Each school within the district also will have a collection area inside the building for students, parents and staff members to drop off donations.
