Could your pantry use some spring cleaning?
The United Way office in Thorofare is calling for last minute food donations as it wraps up the eighth annual Gloucester County Cares About Hunger campaign on Friday, Feb. 22.
While 59 local worksites will be dropping off nonperishable food donations from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the United Way will also accept donations from individuals as well.
All food donations will be loaded onto trucks by volunteers at the United Way offices—where they will then be delivered to the Food Bank of South Jersey and re-distributed to three dozen food pantries across Gloucester County.
Cosponsored by the United Way, the Gloucester County freeholder board's Human Services Council and the People for People Foundation, the Gloucester County Cares About Hunger effort has collected 50 tons of food since its inception in 2006.
To make a donation, locals can bring their items to the United Way office at 454 Crown Point Road—near the West Deptford Municipal Building. For questions or additional information, please contact Donna Fanticola at 856-845-4303, ext. 13.
