LIME CITY - It's a local event that helps provide food, joy and hope for hundreds of county residents each year.
And this year, Perrysburg Township's Operation Breadbasket marks 35 years in action.
"There's a lot of behind the scenes stuff that people just don't know," said Annie Herman-Alrabaya, one of the Operation Breadbasket organizers. She has been working with the program since its inception. The event now assists 100 families a year, providing warm clothes, food, and even presents.
The event is a collaboration among the township fire and police departments, and Perrysburg Christians United, an organization of 11 churches within the city. Herman-Alrabaya, Sharon Upton with PCU, and Bob Warnimont with the township all work closely together to put the event - this year scheduled for Dec. 22 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the old fire hall on Lime City Road.
Operation Breadbasket boxes may be found at the following locations:
• Ralphie's on Holiday Lane.
• Frisch's Big Boy on U.S. 20.
• Walgreens at Route 20 and Thompson Road.
• Huntington Bank at Ohio 795 and Oregon Road.
• Rite Aid, 1175 Louisiana Ave., Perrysburg.
• The O-Deer Diner on Louisiana Avenue, Perrysburg.
• The Perrysburg Messenger-Journal, 117 E. Second St., Perrysburg.
• McDonald's on Route 20.
• Advance America on Route 20.
• The Way Public Library, Perrysburg.
• The Perrysburg Fire Department, West Indiana Avenue, Perrysburg.
• The Perrysburg Township Police Department, Lime City Road.
