COLLECT CANNED FOOD ITEMS FOR YOUR LOCAL FOOD BANK

Many people cannot obtain enough food to feed themselves and their families.  They depend on the work of food banks that store and distribute food. A canned Food drive supports those needs.  

A canned food drive is also a simple project that can be managed by kids or teens of all ages.
