Thanksgiving food drive this Saturday at the Petworth Community Market (and around the neighborhood until Nov. 20!)


Thanksgiving is coming up, and the folks behind the Petworth Community Market have organized a Thanksgiving food drive to support Mary's Center, a great local nonprofit that works on health care, education and social services.

They'll have food bins at the Market on Sunday and also other local businesses until Nov. 20: Annie’s Hardware, Greenline Real Estate, Willow Fashion, Lighthouse Yoga and the Mary's Center office at 3912 Georgia Ave NW.

The Petworth Market is every Saturday from 9am to 1pm at the triangular park where Georgia, Upshur and 9th Street intersect.

Here's more info:
In support of the Mary’s Center 2015 Food Drive, the Petworth Market will host a Thanksgiving food donation bin at the November 7th and November 14th markets.
