IRONWOOD - The Daily Globe is hosting its fourth annual food drive through Nov. 22.

Non-perishable food items can be dropped off at the office, Mondays through Fridays, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

To help boost the number of donations, the Globe is offering an incentive.

"People who bring in five or more non-perishable food items will receive a one-week subscription to the Daily Globe, current or new," Marisa Casari, circulation manager, said. "We hope to get as many items as possible."

This year, the food will be brought to the Union Station, formerly known as The Food Pantry, in Ironwood.

"Each time we hold the drive, we try and donate to a different location," Casari said.

"People food" is not the only thing the Globe accepts.

"While we welcome donations of people food, we will also accept food for our furry friends, as well," publisher Sue Mizell said.

Pet food donations will be given to HOPE Animal Shelter in Ironwood.

"Thank you to everyone in advance for supporting this cause," Mizell said.

For more information, or to make a donation, call the Daily Globe at 906-932-2211, or visit the office at 118 E. McLeod Ave.
