Kewaunee County "Giving For Sara" Drive back for another year

The food & hygiene drive program that started in Kewaunee County nine years ago has returned for the 2021 holiday season. The program was created after the Aging Services Unit Director for Kewaunee County, Sara Malay, passed away after a car crash while at work. Since then, every December, the Kewaunee Public Health Department has put on the “Giving for Sara” food and hygiene drive in her honor. Cindy Kinnard, the Public Health Director, details what you can do to get involved and the impact she has seen from the community in the last nine years.

 

 

If you would like to donate non-perishable foods, the Public Health Department suggests canned chicken or tuna (packed in water), canned fruit (packed in water or fruit juice), healthy cereal, granola bars. As for hygiene products, they suggest shampoo, conditioner, diapers, deodorant, or baby wipes. The health department urges those donating to check the “Best by:” label on any item, as expired items can not be accepted.
