Indian Guide Apartments is drop-off for food bank donations

Staff writer

Indian Guide site director Ruth Lott has announced that Weigand-Omega Management, Inc., which manages the Peabody property, will sponsor a food drive at its properties during the month of November.

“Cupboards of Care” is the fall community-service campaign developed by Weigand-Omega as part of its new corporate giving program, My Neighbor’s Keeper. Weigand-Omega plans to support various service campaigns in communities like Peabody where they manage residential and commercial properties.

“I was very pleased that they let me designate our own community food bank as the recipient of our donations,” Lott said. “The need for food is great all over — especially at this time of year — but Peabody families are in need also, so I want to be sure people know their donations will stay here.”

The community room at Indian Guide has a display about the program and a place to leave non-perishable food donations. Personal care products also are being gathered to share with individuals and families that need them.

“The main door to Indian Guide opens daily at 7 a.m. and is locked again at 9 p.m.,” Lott said. “Donations may be left anytime between those hours.”

Cupboards of Care has been collecting items since Nov. 6 and the campaign lasts until Nov. 20.

“We appreciate the community’s assistance with this project,” Lott said. “Peabody Food Bank serves quite a few people and we would hate to see anyone turned away.”
