The Newnan Junior Service League (NJSL) has begun work on its 29th annual Can-a-Thon for the Coweta Community Food Pantry, which will be held in downtown Newnan and downtown Senoia on Tuesday, November 27, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Community members may drop off their cans or cash donations to representatives at both locations throughout the day.
Donations may also be made at any Coweta County school, at Canongate Coweta County Golf Clubs (Summergrove, White Oak and Canongate locations) throughout the month of November and at the NJSL Cookbook Office (located at 6 East Washington Street in downtown Newnan) on Saturday, November 3 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. NJSL award-winning cookbooks bundles will also be available for purchase this day for $25.
“The Newnan Junior Service League is very proud to continue our tradition of helping our community through the twenty-ninth year of our Can-a-Thon,” said NJSL Can-a-Thon chair Ginny Lambert. “Seeing our community come together, year after year, to help those in need during the winter months is something we should all be proud of. We hope that we will continue to see the same high level of support from the Coweta community again this year.”
The Newnan Junior Service League has worked for a number of years with the Coweta County School System, The Heritage School, local businesses and civic organizations, as well as the cities of Newnan and Senoia, to develop the County’s largest annual food drive.
“The impact that this Can-a-Thon has on our community is amazing,” said Jennifer Cates, NJSL president. “The League is deeply appreciative of the support we have received each year from those who come out and donate, who volunteer, and who contribute through their schools. We are truly honored to be in a position to organize this event that makes a difference in the lives of so many.”
