From Harford County government:
(Bel Air, MD) – – County Executive David R. Craig and Harford County Government are partnering with the U. S. Postal Service to support the Harvest for the Hungry campaign.
The local campaign is coordinated through the Harford Community Action Agency.
“This is a great opportunity for county employees, their families and friends to help support members of our community by contributing to the Harvest for the Hungry food drive,” stated County Executive David R. Craig. “Helping others who need a helping hand is what we are doing when we support outstanding programs such as the Harford Community Action Agency and the Harvest for the Hungry,” Craig remarked.
Harvest for the Hungry is a volunteer effort that strives to collect enough food to supply the needy of Maryland with food throughout the year. The Harford Community Action Agency receives the bulk of the food that collected in Harford County for distribution to those in need.
The Harford County Government food drive is currently underway. Donations of nonperishable food items to this year’s Harvest for the Hungry will help restock local food pantries and ensure they have the necessary resources to help those in the Harford community in need.
Donations that are collected during the week of March 5 – 13, 2010 will go to the U.S. Post Office in Bel Air for distribution to local food pantries. Those wishing to contribute to the Harvest for the Hungry food drive, can drop off nonperishable food items during normal business hours at the Harford County Government Administration building located at 220 South Main Street in Bel Air, the lobby of the Harford County Council building at 212 South Bond Street or the Division of Highways office in Hickory.
Judy at HCAA says
March 6 – 13 is US Postal Service Food Drive Week. The simplest way to donate food to the Harvest for the Hungry Campaign is to leave your bag of nonperishable food by your mailbox or drop it off at your local Post Office.
Children snowed out of school ate lots of food and many low income working parents lost pay for days when snow kept them out of work. Local food pantries met the need but now have empty shelves. Your donation of food will help them continue to help hungry Harford County families.
