Local organization aims to gives back to less fortunate through Fall food drive in November
OCEAN PINES, Md. – Bikers Without Borders Foundation will be giving back to the community through their Fill-the-Truck Food Drive on November 13.
The Vice President of the Foundation said their Spring food drive was successful, so they decided to go on with the Fall event. Members will have the food drive at the Food Lion in Ocean Pines and will be collecting canned goods, non-perishable food items, and monetary donations for local food banks.
We are told it’s important to get the word out about events like these and educate people on why they should give back.
“Regardless, of economic status that are struggling, we’ve got the less and fortunate, we’ve got more at risk kids and seniors, and we feel it’s important that we give back to these folks that need some food, you know we don’t want to see anyone go hungry, we don’t want to see anyone go without the resources needed to be successful,” James Walsh, Vice President of Bikers Without Borders Foundation, said.
The event will happen from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
We’re told food banks receiving donations this month include FORGE Youth & Family Academy, Delmarva Evangelistic Church Agape Food Pantry, Bayshore Community Church, Carter G. Woodson Elementary School, and Sonrise Church. Three of these locations will be providing food in backpacks to school-age children and holiday needs and several are focused on serving the needs of senior citizens.
Monetary donations will be used to purchase additional food items
