Update: Two of our partners wanted to continue the good work, and asked if we could extend our Food Drive! Edgewater Fitness is still collecting food donations through August 19, 2017. Annapolis Athletic Club is collecting food donations through the August 31, 2017.
Our Summer Food Drive is going on now through July 31. Local food banks have fewer donations but greater need during the summer when children are not in school. Please help out by dropping off non-perishable food items to be donated to South County Assistance Network, the Anne Arundel County Food Bank, Laurel Advocacy and Referral Services and Severna Park Assistance Network.
We have been told that canned fruits and veggies are needed at SCAN and AACo Food Bank is low on proteins, which includes peanut butter.
Many thanks to the businesses and venues below for allowing us to place collection boxes.
