“As our efforts continue, we find more and more people in need every day,” the non-profit said on its website. “We have been on a mission to get as much food as we can, as the demand continues to rise.”
Founding Board and Executive Director Ron Shawley said volunteers pick up the items and deliver them to veterans, especially those who are homebound.
To learn about picking up these items for veterans or volunteering, contact their office.
The non-profit is also collecting any used unwanted photo and video cameras and related equipment for its after-school program, where they teach students photography skills.
Those interested in getting involved can ask their workplace if it would run its own food drive.
