Responding to community needs in advance of the holidays, the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (Local IBEW 111 26A) of La Plata Electric Association (LPEA) will host its annual “Fill the Bucket” food drive Saturday, Nov. 14.
LPEA’s “bucket trucks,” and additional vehicles, will be parked at City Market and Hometown Food Markets in Pagosa Springs from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. to collect nonperishable food items (canned goods or boxed/bagged dry goods). Donated food will be distributed to community food banks in Archuleta County.
“We’re expanding to two locations this year,” said Pagosa fleet mechanic Jeremy Gurule, who is assisting in coordinating the event.
