Help fill the pantries!
Healthy Acadia is once again coordinating The Hancock County Food Drive beginning March 1st and running through March 31st, 2016. The 5th Annual Hancock County Food Drive benefits all of Hancock County including Mount Desert Island’s own Bar Harbor Food Pantry – last year the drive collected 13,900 food items and nearly $13,000 in cash donations. That means providing nearly 20,000 meals throughout our community! 20,000! This is an important and urgent cause for all of us – no child, no adult should go without food and each contribution is far-reaching and appreciated.
The Knowles Company is proud to be a collection site for the Drive, please come by our offices Monday through Friday from 9AM to 4PM to leave your donation of food or funds – a Healthy Acadia Volunteer will swing by as needed to pick up. There is an urgent need in our island communities – let’s all be a part of the solution and provide for our neighbors, our friends.
For more information about the Hancock County Food Drive (including collection sites and community meal sites) as well as information on events the myriad of resources and opportunities provided by Healthy Acadia, its sponsors and partners, please visit www.healthyacadia.org.
