The United Way of the North Shore has extended its food drive to the full month of October after the initial one-week drive failed to reach the goal of collecting 10,000 pounds of food.

Area food pantries, local businesses and volunteers have combined with the United Way to help residents in need by replenishing local food pantry shortages.
