Those looking to help community members in need while shopping this holiday season can do so at Fareway in Webster City.
Fareway customers can purchase gift bags containing a variety of food items that the store will deliver to the Upper Des Moines Opportunity Food Bank in Webster City. Two sizes of gift bags can be purchased at either $10 or $25 each. Store Manager Matt Shannon said many shoppers have supported the gift bag program in the past week.
"It's gone over very well with customers," Shannon said. "We've sold roughly 50 bags between the two kinds."
Fareway Store Manager Matt Shannon looks through one of many gift bags that the store will have on sale through Dec. 21. Once purchased by a customer, the bags will be delivered by Fareway to the Upper Des Moines Opportunity food bank.
The gift bags are on display at Fareway's entrance and will continue to be sold at the store through Dec. 21.
