Roeland Park Aquatic Center Food Drive at Roeland Park Aquatic Center

The staff at Roeland Park Aquatic Center is once again holding a food drive for the local food pantry. It will be in July and each week will be a different theme: canned food (July 1-5; bagged food (July 6-12); boxed food July 13-19); toiletries (July 20-26); peanut butter (July 27-31). All food must be nonperishable, closed, and within expiration date. If you have a favorite RPAC lifeguard or Making Waves instructor, help them by cleaning out your pantry and adding it to their bucket! It’s a great fun way to give back to the community!
