Ada McDonald's collecting nonperishable items to help stock Ada Food Pantry

One of the best parts of the end of the year is the changing of the seasons and the chance for families to spend time together during the holidays.

Unfortunately, for many families the holiday season, which is filled with lavish meals for many, is a stark reminder of how difficult it can be to provide even a modest meal for their family.

The Ada McDonald’s Restaurant, owned by Jerry Lewis, is hoping to make a difference this holiday season by holding a drive for the Ada Food Pantry.

The Ada Food Pantry helps provide families in need with a two to three day supply of food in addition to some hygiene items as well.
