RESCHEDULED to January 21: MLK Day of Service Drive-Thru Food Drive at CCFB

Posted on January 4, 2022 by

** Due to the forecasted snowstorm on Sunday 1/16 into Monday, 1/17, we are going to reschedule our Drive-Thru Food Drive to Friday, January 21, 2022**

With the surge in cases of the Omicron variant, we are again challenged with being able to safely offer volunteer opportunities, particularly for Martin Luther King Day – a day dedicated to serving your community.  More than two years into this pandemic, we have learned how to restructure programs so that we can continue to serve.  Although we can only host a very limited number of onsight volunteers, what we have successfully developed in response to safety protocols is our Drive-Thru Food Drives.  We hosted our inaugural MLK DAY of Service last year, and we had such a great response that we will be hosting it again this year on Friday, January 21, 2022. (rescheduled from 1/17 due to snow)

We invite you to the Drive-Thru Food Drive 10:00 am – 1:00 pm at our warehouse at 650 Pennsylvania Drive in Exton in the Eagleview Corporate Center.  Staff and volunteers will be ready to assist with contactless drop-off. Our most needed food items are peanut/nut butters, all-fruit jams, olive oil & spices, and canned proteins (tuna, chicken, beans).  Please no glass containers, homemade or expired items. If possible, please donate items with no/low sodium and with no high fructose corn syrup.

Not able to drive-thru on the 21st?  Consider giving to our virtual food drive or starting your own.
