Donate Food (or $) and We’ll Give You Socks!

Read time: 2 minutes

Join the Mast Shoes Team in a food drive to fight hunger in our community.

From November 8 – November 30, 2019 Mast Shoes is hosting a benefit for Food Gatherers.

To participate, bring at least $20 worth of groceries (from the most needed items list below)* to Mast Shoes and we’ll give you a pair of Smartwool socks (a $25 value).

Don’t feel like shopping for groceries? You’re welcome to make a $20 (or more) donation of cash or check instead (in person at Mast Shoes in order to get your socks).

In Washtenaw County, 1 in 7 of our neighbors suffers from food insecurity. This means 6 in 7 of us can work to change this. We hope you’ll join the fight against hunger where we live.

Our Goal Is To Raise 5,000 Meals in November!

1.2 lbs of food = 1 meal
$5 = 15 meals

Please Donate Items On This List (they’re what is needed most):

Low Sodium Hearty Soups (Beef, Chili, Chicken, etc.)
Low Sodium Canned Meats (Tuna, Chicken, etc.)
Low Sodium or No Salt Canned Vegetables
Canned or Packaged Pasta
Beans (canned or dry)
Rice
Cereal & Oatmeal
Granola Bars
Nut Butters & Jelly (Plastic Jars)
Baby Food & Formula (Plastic Jars)
Ensure & Other Nutritional Supplement Drinks

We are unable to accept food donations past their expiration date.
