CCCA holds scavenger hunt

Clinton County Community Action partnering with local businesses for a COVID-friendly scavenger hunt.

On Tuesdays and Thursdays in December leading up to Christmas, clues will be posted to the Community Action Facebook page — at www.facebook.com/ClintonCCAP — describing a specific small business.

The first person to take a picture next to the Community Action snowflake hung outside of the correct business and share their photo in the comments of the initial clues post, will win a special gift sponsored by that business.

Drive-through food pantry slated

There will be a Food for All Mobile Food Pantry at the Blanchester Church of Christ, 911 Cherry St., Blanchester, on Thursday, Dec. 10.

This is a drive-through food pantry, so there is no need to leave your vehicle; please have the trunk of your car empty.

TEFAP eligibility income requirements of 200% at or above the federal poverty line apply.
