The Brightside Project in Salem is asking the public for donations to continue helping area children.

The Stop and Go drive-thru drop off will take place Saturday, May 2 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. 

The non-profit is asking for non-perishable food or personal care items, preferably child-friendly, to fill up its food donation supplies.

Food donation examples could include canned soup, pop tarts, crackers, granola bars, ramen noodles, mac and cheese, juice boxes, cereal, oatmeal, canned ravioli, fruit snacks, chips, pretzels, fruit cups, apple sauce and candy

Personal care items are needed like toothpaste, toothbrushes, shampoo, bar soap, feminine care items, and deodorant.

Each vehicle that donates needed items will be entered in one of two raffles for $500 worth of Downtown Salem location gift cards.

The Brightside Project fills the needs of children ages 3 to 18 and has had multiple crisis relief donations for kids during the coronavirus pandemic.
