Weather could impact Saturday's commodity distribution

Wintry weather could postpone the U.S. Department of Agriculture commodity distribution scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 22, in Cortez, Dolores, and Mancos.

A message will be posted after 4:30 p.m. Friday at 560-2771 on whether or not the distribution will occur.

The distribution schedule for Cortez will be from 7:30 to 8 a.m. at the Montezuma County Fairgrounds; in Dolores from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m., at the Dolores Fire Hall; and in Mancos from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. at the United Methodist Church, 470 Grand Ave.

If clients are not able to go to a give-away in person, they can give their card and a note of authorization to someone else to pick up commodities for them. They must have a card and note, or they will not be able to pick up commodities. Participants are reminded that they must bring their own box for their commodities. The agriculture department cannot supply enough boxes for everyone.

For more information, or if you would like to help with the distribution, call Judy at 564-2772.
