MARLBOROUGH – The Marlborough Democratic City Committee (MDCC) will hold its fall collection drive of food, personal items, and funds to benefit the Marlborough Community Cupboard on Saturday, Oct. 22, rain or shine. 

MDCC conducts four drives each year.

“I want to thank our residents for the outpouring of support they continue to give the committee for this worthy cause,” said MDCC Chairman Dan Caruso.

The Community Cupboard collection will be conducted as a dropoff at the Navin Arena lower parking lot, 451 Bolton St., Marlborough, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Nonperishable food, personal care items and financial donations, including gift cards, are welcome.

Needed items include children’s items, especially diapers and wipes; basic cooking items such as cooking oil and sugar and baking goods such as cake, muffin and pancake mixes. The cupboard is also seeking peanut butter and jelly, canned goods, snack foods, breakfast items and condiments.
