Auburn Mayor Nancy Backus and Auburn Food Bank Director Debbie Christian on Thursday morning kicked off the 2019 Mayor’s Day of Concern for the Hungry – and a curbside food drive for residents.
Waste Management also presented a $1,500 check to the Auburn Food Bank at City Hall in the community’s fight against hunger.
From Sept. 23-27, Auburn residents can participate by placing food donations in bags or boxes next to WM carts by 7 a.m. on their regular WM service day. Please label bags or boxes “Food Drive.”
Waste Management will pick up and deliver the donations to the Auburn Food Bank.
• Sealed, non-perishable and unexpired food
• Non-food items such as diapers and toiletries
• Please, no alcohol or glass containers
Go to the WM-Auburn website to see the full list of acceptable items at wmnorthwest.com/auburn.
The goal is to surpass last year’s total of nearly three tons of items donated by Auburn residents.
