The Corridor Nine Area Chamber of Commerce's annual food drive with the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Boston-Westborough started this month and ends Dec. 12, chamber Vice President Karen Chapman told chamber members in a recent e-mail.
The proceeds will benefit the food pantries in the five towns, Chapman said.
"If you would like to make a donation directly, items can be dropped off at the Corridor Nine Chamber office at 30 Lyman Street in Westborough or the Doubletree Hotel at 5400 Computer Drive in Westborough," she said.
"Cash donations or checks are also accepted. Checks should be made payable to: Corridor Nine Area Chamber of Commerce, 30 Lyman Street/P.O. Box 1555, Westborough, MA 01581. If you mail a check, please indicate on it that you are making a donation for the food drive.
"We are asking our businesses and schools to set up collection bins at your locations and encourage employees, staff members, and parents/school children to make donations.
"The Doubletree Hotel is willing to pick up the food items from anyone willing to collect items on our behalf. Please contact the Chamber office (508-836-4444) if you would be willing to collect food items at your business or school location."
