NORTH ATTLEBORO — State Rep. Betty Poirier says she will have to postpone the annual Day of Caring food drive because of the threat of rain.

Poirier, R-North Attleboro, said the event was supposed to be Saturday but has now been moved to Sept. 21, from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m..

The event involves town residents coming to Community School and dropping off non-perishable food and personal care products into a front loader.

Poirier said she challenges people to see how many times the front loader can be filled.

The donations are then given to Lenore’s Pantry, a food bank that serves the needy.

Poirier said the food drive is done in conjunction with junior football.
