Members of the Minisink Valley Kiwanis have been providing Thanksgiving and Christmas food baskets to the needy for more than 40 years. Fundraising projects throughout the year pay for the food, which is purchased at ShopRite on Dolson Avenue in Middletown. The Minisink Valley Key Club supplies the funds for one of the baskets.
In addition, beginning in May of 2007, the Kiwanis Club of Minisink Valley enacted a monthly food basket program. Each month we deliver food baskets to three needy families in our area. The shoppers meet monthly at ShopRite on Dolson Avenue in Middletown. This program was funded by our clubs first ever advertising booklet that was sent to over 8,000 homes in the Minisink Valley and Pine Island area.
