The Lancaster Barnstormers are holding a protein food drive for the Power Packs Project. From 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily through Friday, June 22, readers may bring donations to the box office, located at 650 N. Prince St., Lancaster.
The protein drive will help save a significant amount of money that would otherwise come out of the Power Packs annual budget. While many food items are purchased at significant savings from the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank, Power Packs purchases protein items weekly at close to full price.
Fans, friends, family, sponsors, and partners may participate. For each that individuals donate, they will receive a Lawn Pass for a July 2018 game of their choice. Persons who already have tickets may simply ask for an upgrade.
The Power Packs Project is a nonprofit organization that provides nutritious meals over weekends when school breakfast and lunch programs are unavailable to students. The organization is in 14 school districts, has more than 450 volunteers, and serves more than 2,000 families in the Lancaster and Lebanon area.
