?   During the month of February, Goodwill BridgePointe Services will hold a food drive at each of the 11 Goodwill BridgePointe store locations in Southern Indiana. Canned food donations can be dropped off in the box provided inside each store. “Winter months are especially difficult for local food pantries,” says Candice Barksdale, Goodwill BridgePointe CEO. “Through this donation drive, we hope to assist these agencies by providing another convenient drop off location for people who may not ordinarily have thought to give.”
   Canned food donations to the following Goodwill BridgePointe locations will benefit the listed agency:
   Clarksville –– Center for Lay Ministries
   Corydon –– Harrison County Community Services
   Jeffersonville –– Center for Lay Ministries
   Floyds Knobs –– Grace Lutheran Church
   New Albany –– Pearl Baptist Mission
   North Vernon –– Jennings County Coordinating Council
   Madison –– a local Jefferson County food pantry
   Salem –– Washington County Food Bank
   Scottsburg –– Clearing House
  Seymour –– Jackson County Human Services
   Goodwill BridgePointe hopes to continue the annual food drive next year rotating the distribution of donations among local agencies. To submit an organization for consideration in 2010 or for more information, please call 1-812-283-7908.
