LDS Church to have food drive Saturday

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will hold a food drive Saturday for the Emergency Food Network in Pierce County.

Donations of nonperishable foods in bags will be collected from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at two LDS chapels in Tacoma. One is at 1102 S. Pearl St. and the other is at 2455 S. 78th St.

Members of the Mormon Church will be asking friends and neighbors to collect food for the drive. Anyone can drop off donations at the two chapels.

The local food drive is part of a national community service project of the church. It is being held in conjunction with the National Day of Service in memory of the victims of the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001.
