Redding has launched an initiative being called "vonate". The Redding Town Clerk and Registrar of Voters are working with the Redding Food Pantry this election season to restock the shelves. Supplies are low and the town officials are hoping that residents will help out.
As Redding residents go to Town Hall to register to vote or apply for an absentee ballot and those voting at the Community Center on Election Day are being called on to bring an item to donate to the Redding Food Pantry.
They are also collecting gift cards to grocery stores.
