From Harford County government:
County Executive David R. Craig has announced that Harford County Government is once again 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.
“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 food drive will help fill the Harford Community Action Agency food bank warehouse and help ensure they have the resources to help those in need throughout Harford County.
Donations that are collected during the week of February 12 – 19, 2011 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, at any of the five community centers throughout the county or leave donations by their mailbox for pickup by postal carriers.
