Maurices at the D&F Plaza, 1170 Central Ave., Dunkirk is holding a Food Drive to benefit Friendly Kitchen.
"While we participate in a number of *maurices*-sponsored benefits throughout the year, we are especially proud when we have the opportunity to support causes right here at home," Store Manager Candice Coon said.
The Food Drive continues through Thursday, Dec. 20. Customers can drop off their donations any time during store hours, which are Monday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Items needed include non- perishable food items.
For each donation, people will receive a coupon for 20 percent off any one regular-priced Maurices item. Maurices offers clothing and accessories for fashion-savvy young women in sizes 1 to 24.
"This drive is just one way we can express how grateful we are to be a part of this community," O'Shea said. "We invite customers to be part of this effort and look forward to giving them a special deal on an item from Maurices in return."
