(KTIV) – While the weather outside makes it feel like summer, the Siouxland Soup Kitchen hopes you are thinking about the winter when giving back.
The organization is holding a fundraising effort called Christmas in July.
Officials with the Soup Kitchen say they hope the effort reminds people that while many people donate food items during the winter, the organization is in need of items year-round, in particular, the summer.
Officials say on average they serve between 2,000 to 2,500 meals a month, and the summer is one of their busier times of the year, as more families and people struggling to feed their children with school out coming to the Soup Kitchen.
All food items are accepted, including dry goods, vegetables, and bottles of water. If you are donating refrigerated items, those would need to be delivered to the Soup Kitchen location.
Other items can be dropped off at several drop off locations. A full list of those locations can be found on their Facebook page by clicking here.
The Siouxland Soup Kitchen is open from noon – 5 p.m. at 717 West 7th St.
