Food pantries in our area are struggling to keep their shelves stocked. River Skate recently opened for the season in Clat Adams Park, and on Thursday they'll be doing their part to help out those in need by hosting a food drive to benefit Horizons' kitchen.

On November 21, everyone that brings a non-perishable food item to River Skate will not only be supporting Horizons, but will also receive $1 off admission. Specific items that Horizons has asked for include:

  • Canned Meat
  • Spaghetti Sauce
  • Pasta
  • Vegetables and Fruit
  • Skillet Dinners

River Skate is Quincy's outdoor synthetic ice rink. Unlike a traditional frozen ice rink, River Skate utilizes Super-Glide synthetic ice, which "offers a skating experience that is similar to the ice rinks everyone is familiar with."

River Skate is open Wednesday-Friday: 4:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m., and Sunday-Saturday: 12:00 p.m.- 9:00 p.m. Admission is $4 for children (4 - 8) and $6 for adults. Skate admission is included.

Horizons Social Services of Adams County, Inc. seeks to meet the personal and community needs of the disadvantaged and destitute in the city of Quincy. We also attempt to serve as a communication facilitator between area churches and social service providers." - horizonssocialservices.com
