Food Drive, Blood Drive Announced March 29, 2017
The third Feed the Need Food Drive and a community blood drive have been announced.
During the past two food drives, Feed the Need has provided more than 5,000 pounds of food to Water Street Mission at a time when the holiday food drive donations begin to run out. This year, proponents hope to donate another 3,000 pounds of food or more to the mission. Community members may drop off food items during normal business hours at any HARTZ Physical Therapy office, including locations at 100 Highlands Drive, Suite 100, Lititz; 90 Good Drive, Suite 201, Lancaster; and 1635 W. Main St., Suite 500, Ephrata. Water Street Mission will use the food to serve free meals and provide free pantry items to men, women, and children in need.
A community blood drive will take place on Tuesday, April 11, at HARTZ Physical Therapy, 100 Highlands Drive, Suite 100, Lititz, from 2 to 6 p.m. Donations will be used to stock the Lancaster Blood Bank. All blood types are needed. For eligibility information and answers to frequently asked questions, readers may visit www.cpbb.org.
