Support Belknap Community Food Drive

G.R. PICKLEBALL MEMBERS/FRIENDS!

Our Board of Directors has endorsed a joint venture with Immanuel Lutheran Church for a Spring/Summer Food Drive.

Our Goals:

  1. Give back to the Belknap Community in which we play pickleball.
  2. Have a daily/weekly food drive to gather between 7,500/10,000 lbs of food for NECM (North End Community Ministry – only 4 blocks from Belknap) which serves over 750 families/month.
  3. When you come to play pickleball, at Belknap or MSA, bring a can/box/sack of food or personal care items.
  4. Containers will be placed at both locations for you in which to drop your contribution.
  5. Our drive will culminate on the last day of the Beer City Open, July 15.
