An estimated $2,100 was taken in last weekend during a Sussex Lions Club food drive to buy Thanksgiving Day dinner for the Sussex Food Pantry clients, according to the Sussex Sun.
The club, which held the drive at Pick n' Save and Piggly Wiggly, is expecting to deliver 248 meals this year, the paper said.
The club also received a cart full of food, according to club member John Haunfelder, who spoke to the Sussex Sun.
The next drive will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 15 and 16.
