Holiday event will benefit Food Pantry

A festive holiday event that benefits the Whitehall Food Pantry will be held next week.

A “Holiday Fun Family” event will be held from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 5, at Riverside Veterans Memorial Park.

“We want to remind everyone that the need is go great at this time of year,” Cheryl Putorti, organizer, said.

Putorti and several others banded together to organize the event after learning the Canadian Pacific Holiday Train would not be stopping in Whitehall. The event raises monetary and food donations for the Whitehall Food Pantry.

Next week’s event will be half food drive, half holiday celebration.

The event will include a tree lighting, music, an appearance by Santa and his “elves” and refreshments.

Santa Claus, Mrs. Clause and their elves will arrive at the park at 6:15 p.m.

Everyone who attends is encouraged to bring a donation—food or monetary—for the food pantry.

Anyone who would like to make a donation before then or is unable to attend on Thursday can their items or check  off at Putorti’s Market.

Checks should be made out to the Whitehall Community Food Pantry.
