As is the case with many events in 2020, the 39th Annual Holiday Toy and Food Distribution will still be held, but it will be in a different format this year.
The biggest change is that the toy distribution and food distribution will be in separate locations and on different days. Registration was required for the toy distribution, but there will be no registration for the food distribution.
The event is hosted by the United Way of Monongalia and Preston Counties, Christian Help and the Monongalia County Humane Society, and it is sponsored by DTE Energy and Kroger.
Toy Registration is now closed
Toy registration is now closed as the maximum number of families has been reached.
Those who are registered and have been assigned a time will pick up the toys at Christian Help, 219 Walnut St., Morgantown.
Those who don’t pick up toys on their assigned day will forfeit those items.
TO RECEIVE FOOD:
The food distribution will be held from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Dec. 4 at the former Ramada Inn, off Scott Avenue in Morgantown. It will be a drive-thru only.
The Mountaineer Food Bank will be offering the mobile food bank for the event, and volunteers will be on hand to load groceries into vehicles. The Monongalia County Humane Society will provide pet food for families with dogs and cats.
There is no advance registration for the food distribution. It is on a first-come, first-served basis.
The Morgantown Board of Realtors will deliver some food to homebound, shut-ins or disabled people who don’t have transportation to the distribution.
More information will be coming about volunteer opportunities.
