Our Annual Food Drive Has Begun

Our Annual Food Drive Has Begun

People in need are all around us, people we know, people we see every day. It might be your neighbor who’s unemployment benefits have run out, or that elderly couple down the street who are struggling to get by on a fixed income, or maybe even a two income family you know that just went down one income due to a layoff, illness or some other unforeseen predicament. Also, now that the holidays are over, the food pantries supplies are way down. That’s the bad news. The good news is, there is something you can do to help, and it couldn’t be easier. We’re collecting non-perishable food items and personal care items in our Keenan Honda showroom starting right now during our annual food drive, benefiting the Doylestown, PA Community Food Pantry.

Help us make a difference to local families in need for the holidays and beyond! Just bring your donation(s) into our showroom and drop them off in the collection bin (look for the red and white checkers!). Last year’s response to our food drive was amazing – let’s do it again! We are accepting donations through February 28th.

Here’s a quick rundown of needed items:

What is always needed: Fruit, tuna, spaghetti sauce, sugar, gravy, chunky soups, rice, coffee, microwave meals, powdered milk, cereal and salad dressing.
The kids love: Spaghettios, fruit cups, applesauce, peanut butter, raviolis, grape jelly, fruit roll-ups, and baby food.
Additional non-food items needed: Laundry detergent, toothpaste, tooth brushes, toilet paper, shampoo and other personal care items also make for a great donation!

Please note that the above items are just suggestions. Anything that you enjoy at your home would be greatly appreciated!

The Doylestown, PA food pantry serves approximately 400 households a month and has 6 Supportive Housing Shelter apartments on site. Bucks County Housing Group, as a whole, operates 5 shelters and 3 pantries country-wide.

Please help us make this year’s food drive a big success – your generosity can make a huge difference to local Doylestown, PA families in need! Thank you for your support.
