Milk is one of the most requested, and least donated items for local food banks. Consider donating a few cents to the Great American Milk Drive. Going to the State Fair? Ask to "Round Up" your purchase at the Dairy Bar, donate at the tent on August 14th or text "milk" to 27722 and help a hungry family put milk on the table.
