Business community & local government come together to support Camping for Hunger

7 November 2016 News


camping-for-hunger-flyerBoth Warren County and the Town of Front Royal are jumping on the Camping for Hunger bus to help collect food for needy families in our area.

Warren County Administrator Doug Stanley announced a “friendly competition” between the County and Town during his recent report to the Warren County Supervisors. Canned goods and non-perishable items are currently being accepted at each of the Government Center entrances. Collection boxes are also located at the Town Administration building.

In addition to local government’s participation, several other businesses have jumped on the bus to help our local community in their time of need. Bill Welling, owner of Sparky’s Electric has challenged other local businesses, “I’m placing my grocery orders now to help fill that bus. I challenge the businesses you have listed to beat Sparkys Electric this year. I will donate $500 in cash if they can beat my total cost. Not gonna happen though. I’m up to 2 thousand dollars worth now. I’ve only just begun.

Bill Long, owner of Auto Care Clinic is offering $10 off his services for anyone who drops off canned goods and non-perishable items at his location 6768 Winchester Road in Front Royal. You can get this offer from his Facebook page by clicking here.

The River 95.3 staff will be “Camping for Hunger” in the Front Royal Plaza Shopping Center off South Street in Front Royal beginning Monday morning, November 14th through Saturday morning, November 19th. The annual Camping for Hunger food drive is part of the station’s ongoing commitment to make a difference in the community each year, according to Royal Broadcasting’s president and owner Andrew Shearer.

The campaign partners with C-CAP of Front Royal/Warren County for food distribution so that everything collected stays in our community.
