It’s the giving season, and the Midwest City Beacon staff is asking people to get into the spirit with their third annual food drive. During the next few weeks, the newspaper will be hosting a food drive to benefit the Mid-Del Food Pantry. Donations of non-perishable food items will be accepted at the Beacon office, 1500 S. Midwest Blvd., Ste. 202, until noon Monday, Dec. 18. The office is located on the second floor of the Bank of Oklahoma building, on the northeast corner of Midwest Blvd.
