MANCHESTER – The 12th Annual “Emergency of Hunger” Food Drive, composed of 1st Responders, Rotary members, and others, was a great success. All donations went to benefit South Windsor Food & Fuel bank and Manchester Area Conferences of Churches food pantry. This year, we collected food, gift cards and cash at Highland Park Market, Geisler’s and Stop & Shop in both South Windsor and Manchester. With added precautions in place to ensure the safety of the participants as well as the donors, we finished strong and here are the results:
South Windsor Totals: Food Items: 8,984 Turkeys: 160 Cash: $12,000
Manchester Totals: Food Items: 7,723 Turkeys: 366 Cash: $18,691.73
Combined Totals: Food Items: 16,707 Turkeys: 526 Cash: $30,691.73
ASM would like to thank everyone involved for making this year’s food drive a success, despite the added challenges.
