Drop off non-perishable food items at the Burnet County Courthouse, annexes, and libraries through Nov. 15 during the county’s annual food drive. Officials hope to restock shelves at local pantries ahead of the holidays.

“We try to find little things to do our part to help our local community,” said county Communications Clerk Connie Haines. “I look at it as we’re helping (pantries) during a time when they need it the most.”

The drive benefits The Helping Center of Marble Falls, Lakes Area Care Inc. in Burnet, and the Bertram Food Pantry.

“It’s a chance for us, county employees, to help an organization,” Haines said.
