You can help by donating nonperishable food items at participating Shaw's supermarkets in Southern New England. Look for marked bins inside Shaw's stores in Rhode Island and Bristol County, Mass. Donations will be accepted from Nov. 8 through Nov. 25.
Requested items for each basket include rice, pasta, corn, peas, green beans, assorted vegetables, gravy, cranberry sauce, stuffing, soup, spaghetti sauce and dessert items. The Salvation Army will provide fresh carrots and potatoes for each food basket.
Shaw's will provide 3,000 $10 gift cards to be used for turkeys or other groceries. The Salvation Army will sort and distribute the food to families.
