County Relay for Life seeking canned food for weights

The ACS Relay For Life of Marion County is collecting canned food to use as luminary weights.

After the event, the food will be distributed to food banks in Hillsboro, Marion, Peabody and Goes?sel.

Ten-ounce to 16-ounce can sizes are preferred. Drop-off locations through Oct. 8 are St. Luke Hospital, 535 S. Freeborn St., Marion, and Kessler Kreations, 112 S. Main St., Hillsboro. Last year?s event included about 1,200 luminaria and more are anticipated this year. That means at least 300 cans for each food bank.
