The city of Wixom and the Walled Lake Eagles are teaming up to support the community’s local food pantry, Hospitality House, during Operation Can Do on Thursday, Aug. 11 from 7-9 p.m. at Sibley Park .
The Walled Lake Eagles truck will be the drop-off point for canned goods collected to benefit Hospitality House and will be parked at the site during the city’s summer concert scheduled that evening.
“The Walled Lake Eagles does a lot of community events and is a great organization to work with,” said Community Parks and Recreation Director Deanna Magee.
The mission of Hospitality House is to end hunger in the community by providing food to those in need by operating a food pantry that serves the residents of the immediate community, and by supporting efforts to fight hunger in the wider southeastern Michigan community by providing advice and aid to pantries in other cities.
According to Magee, Wixom community members donated roughly 600 pounds of food to Hospitality House during last year’s Operation Can Do event.
