The 40th Annual Holiday Toy and Food Distribution will be held Thursday, Dec. 16, at the WV National Guard Readiness Center.
Registration is required for the toy distribution, but there is no registration needed 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.
To register for toys and food, call Christian Help at 304-296-0221 between 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Monday, Oct. 18-Friday, Oct. 29. Those who only want food do not need to register. Those wanting pet food for families with dogs and cats should tell how many pets they have when registering with Christian Help.
The food distribution will be held from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Dec. 16.
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.
