Oblock Junior High Reach Out Club’s food drive continues

Michael DiVittorio

Oblock Junior High School Reach Out Club’s third annual Thanksgiving Food Drive continues through Wednesday.

Donations will be collected at the Plum school, 440 Presque Isle Drive.

The club is asking for canned goods such as vegetables, pie crusts and fillings, apple juice and boxed goods like stuffing, desserts and mashed potatoes.

Monetary donations are also welcome.

Club sponsor Ron Sakolsky said Reach Out hopes to help between 30 to 50 families with the food drive, and more than 200 families in cooperation with Franklin Regional’s Serving Other Souls.

“No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted,” Sakolsky said. “In the season of thanks, give to those who are less fortunate.”

Reach Out has an online campaign to help support its other projects.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
