Senator Tom Killion (R-9th) and Representative Chris Quinn (R-168th) will hold a food and pet food drive this Saturday, July 11th from 10am to 12pm at the Concord Township Building for the benefit of those served by the Media Food Bank and Brandywine Valley SPCA.
“These are challenging times,” said Killion. “Many families are struggling to put food on their table and care for their four-legged family members. If you can, please help those in need.”
The Media Food Bank is in need of nonperishable food such as canned tuna, peanut butter, jelly, canned soups, rice, pasta and noodles, cold cereals, and items such as toilet paper, feminine products, soaps, shampoo, and other personal care products.
The Brandywine Valley SPCA requests contributions of dry dog food and wet, paté-style cat food. Grocery store and pet store gift cards are also welcomed.
The Concord Township Building is located at 43 Thornton Road in Glen Mills. Those with questions should call Killion’s district office at 610-447-3163.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has had numerous negative consequences, including stark economic impacts on many working-class families in our region,” Quinn said. “As a community, we must come to together to help those most in need, and that is why I am proud to host this necessary food drive.
“While I remain hopeful that our economy will see a proper bounce back and families will once again be able to provide food for their loved ones, I hope this temporary relief can lessen this burden during a time of need.”
Said Killion, ““We are a generous, caring community. I’m glad we’re able to provide this opportunity for local residents to make sure those in need have food on their table for themselves, their families and their pets.”
