IMPORTANT MESSAGE: To better serve those who attend the United Way food drop, we are capping registration at 240 households per month. This is more than the average number of households we serve each month.

United Way’s Food Drop will now be rotating counties by month. Each month there will be one Food Drop that you are welcome to attend either in Douglas or Pope County. 
• Thursday, May 25th | Douglas County

Douglas Food Drops will continue to take place at New Life Christian Church (1910 County Road 82 SE, Alexandria)
Pope Food Drops will continue to take place at Glenwood United Parish (10 17th Ave NW, Glenwood)

Attendees will still register in advance and receive a time slot to pick up food on distribution day. At arrival you continue to drive through a line and receive an assortment of food, free of charge.
