Annual Food Drive Starts November 7!
The Annual GTMS Food Drive starts next week!
This year our Food Drive will benefit Philadelphia’s SHARE Food Program. Philadelphia SHARE provides nutritious food to a network of 505 food cupboards and 100 host organizations each month. In addition to providing emergency food relief, SHARE also runs a community garden, providing residents in the surrounding community with increased access to local produce. SHARE also runs a Package Program, which expands access to affordable food, through below-retail foodpackages to about 5,000 households in the region.
The Food Drive will run from Monday, November 7th through Friday, November 18th (please note that only ADM is in session on Friday, November 18th).
Please bring non-perishable food items to the donation boxes located at the school entrances (East or West). SHARE is also asking for baby items, including baby formula, baby food, and food pouches. Once the Food Drive is over, our Kindergarteners will help sort the donations.
Your donations are greatly appreciated by many Philadelphians throughout the area. Last year's drive was a great success. Let's make this year even better!
