The Festival of Lights Parade is in downtown Columbus Saturday night. Workers and managers at Lowe’s Home Improvement Center in Columbus hope that you will celebrate with a new tradition this year, bringing canned food to donate to Love Chapel.
The store is partnering with White River Broadcasting for the parade and will bring a decorated flatbed semi and a small army of volunteers to help “Fill the Flatbed” with non-perishable canned goods.
Justin Barrett, assistant store manager for Lowe’s, said the company was looking for a way to take part in the parade and get more involved in the community. They settled on a food drive of canned food, whose silver color fits the silver anniversary theme of this year’s parade, Barrett said.
The parade starts at 6 p.m.
