Donate Food - Stop Senior Hunger Food Drive September!

Are your employees looking to participate in an easy but rewarding opportunity to help others? If so, consider a Stop Senior Hunger food drive during the month of September. Comfort Keepers serving communities in Montgomery, Chester, Delaware and Philadelphia PA counties is looking for partners to host a food drive during the month of September - Hunger Action Month!
Hosting a food drive is very easy. To get started, place a call to the Comfort Keepers office at 610-543-6300. Tell the receptionist you are calling about hosting a food drive, she will connect you with our Community Outreach/Stop Senior Hunger Coordinator Melody McHugh. Melody will assist you with setting up your drive for the month of September. 
Comfort Keepers can provide you with a collection box, flyers to hang or hand out and will promote your organization on our web page and other social media sites. Once your food is collected, a Comfort Keepers staff person will come to your location and pick up the food. The food is then personally delivered to a senior citizen program such as the Senior Adult Activity Center S.A.A.C Center in Norristown or is taken directly to some senior citizen apartment dwellings in Delaware County PA that are willing to accept and distribute the food.

  1. Melody -

    Great post and thanks for getting involved with Hunger Action Month! We have more tips and resources for getting involved with Hunger Action Month here:

  2. Thank you Sarah, our office locally has donated over 13000 pounds of food so I guess our national company has probably hit the 50-60 thousand pound donation mark by now.
