Community Service Day Food Drive logo

Thank you to everyone who made the Community Service Day Citywide Food Drive a resounding success. Together, we collected nearly 11,500 pounds of food and close to $9,000 dollars - combined, that will provide 27,816 meals.

Our Virtual Food Drive will remain open through Thanksgiving 2020 for those who would like to continue to give!
