Deposits for Food suspended

From D4F founder Angelo Sarkees:

As you may know, over the past six years, Deposits for Food has collected 750,000 returnable containers and 100-200 tons of scrap metal. The receipts have gone to three Niagara County food pantries, most notably Community Missions and Heart, Love & Soul (also Care-N-Share in Ransomville). Due to the uncertainty of the COVID-19 virus I have decided to suspend my collections for a few weeks.

Thanks to all who have donated and provided assistance to my efforts, particularly my friend Doug Adamson, owner of Porter Empty Returns in Ransomville, who, with his staff, has provided invaluable assistance to my efforts.

I hope to resume these efforts sooner than later. Feel free to drop off your returnables at Porter Empty Returns in Ransomville (phone 791-1113) and you could donate them to D4F's account if you wish.

Again, thanks to all who have donated to my efforts. I will let you know as soon as I resume these efforts. I can be reached by email, [email protected].
