FARMINGTON – There will be a food drive to benefit the Home for Women and Children.

The Shiprock Home for Women and Children is pictured Aug. 20 in Shiprock.

Donations will be accepted from 1 to 4 p.m. Monday at the Walmart at 1400 W. Main St. in Farmington.

Items the shelter needs include canned soup, canned tuna, canned beans, canned vegetables, low-sugar cereal, all-purpose flour, cooking oil and canned tomatoes – sauce, diced or whole.

Organizers prefer the food be low in sodium and not in glass containers.

The food collected will be used by residents housed at the domestic violence shelter in Shiprock.
