Posted July 9, 2007 8:28 p.m. EDT

— The Salvation Army of Wake County said its Food Assistance Pantry has run very low on non-perishable food items.

Summer has traditionally been a hard time for the pantry as donations drop off, officials said.

The Salvation Army has collection barrels available for office food drives. Individuals, businesses, churches, civic clubs and all others are encouraged to donate.

Some suggested items are: canned fruits, vegetables, meats, soups, rice, cereal, pasta, crackers and powdered milk.

Non-perishable items can be donated to The Salvation Army, 215 S. Person St., Raleigh, 27601. Call 919-834-6733 for more information.
