Stop Senior Hunger - Donate Canned and Dry Foods Locations Wanted in Montgomery and Delaware County, PA
Stop Senior Hunger is a national program our company Comfort Keepers participates in to give back to the community which we serve. Comfort Keepers started this program in conjunction with Sodexho. To date, our local offices in Springfield and King of Prussia have collected over 17,000 pounds of food and hand delivered it to local low income senior apartment dwellings. Our collection partners in the community over the last few years have included the Delaware County Chamber of Commerce, Rocky Run YMCA, Holy Child Society in Rosemont, Murphy AME Church in Chester, Tozur Energy in King of Prussia and most recently Johnson and Johnson in Radnor. These partners have hosted food collection drives and assisted us feeding many low income seniors in the area.
At this time Comfort Keepers is reaching out to businesses in the area, our universities, schools and organizations in the area to offer community service projects for students, young adults or groups interested in collecting canned or dry goods for low income senior citizens. Food drives can be small for example one student might want to ask a few neighbors to place the food items at end of driveway and then with a parent’s help drive around and pick up the donations, a larger group such as cheerleading squad might want to host a dance or some type of event where admission is can of food or even several schools might want to compete against each other to race to finish to see which school can pride itself on collecting the most pounds in determined amount of time or at an event. Small or large businesses such as banks might have branches compete against each other to see who can collect the most food.
The Stop Senior Hunger food drive is very easy to set up. Once your organization decides to collect food, we will drop off a collection container to the location, provide you with a flyer to promote your drive and provide support to your organization when it comes time to deliver the donations.We also promote the food drive on our social media sites.
