Friends of Swoop's October/November 2019
Fresh Thyme Market Food Drive
2985 Washtenaw Ave, Ypsilanti, MI 48197
Swoop’s and Fresh Thyme Market in Ypsilanti are collaborating again this year to host a food drive during the month of November, which coincides with Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week (Nov 16-24). During the food drive, shoppers can help stock shelves by donating pasta, pasta sauce, peanut butter, tortillas and more! Be sure to stop and meet our volunteers at the front of the store to learn more about Swoop’s. On November 23rd, help the drive will wrap up with a BBQ! All proceeds will help Swoop’s continue to stock the shelves and fill the fridges.
