The C-T has been a proud sponsor of the Food for the Needy Campaign for more than 30 years.

As the holidays rapidly approach the need for food for less fortunate area residents also increases. The Constitution-Tribune in conjunction with the Salvation Army and area retailers are asking area shoppers to donate non-perishable and canned food items to the Food for the Needy Campaign. The large red bins have already been placed in Wal-Mart, HyVee and the Sliced Bread Market.
