LACONIA — The Laconia Professional Firefighters are accepting donations for the St Vincent De Paul Food Pantry at both the Central Station, 848 N. Main St, and the Weirs Station, 7 Lucerne Ave.
With the holidays upon us all local food pantries are in need of donations. The Laconia Firefighters have placed a drop box in each station lobby that the public can access. Here is a list from the St Vincent De Paul website as to needed donations: canned meats and beef stews, canned soups, canned vegetables, canned fruit, tuna fish, canned juices, tomato sauce, crushed tomatoes, pasta, macaroni and cheese.
Personal care and baby items are also needed. These include diapers, tissue, and toilet paper. Toothbrushes, toothpaste, shaving cream are also welcomed. Baby wipes and baby food are also most appreciated.
