Camping for Hunger 2018 Breaks Record for Food & Monetary Donations
21 November 2018
We were in the studio with Larry Elliott, President of Front Royal/Warren County CCAP to discuss Camping for Hunger 2018 and the final numbers of food & monetary donations collected during the weeklong food drive that took place Monday, November 12, 2018 – Saturday, November 17, 2018 at Royal Plaza Shopping Center.
Larry told us about the impact this year’s donations will have on CCAP’s ability to serve those in our community who need their services. We talked about the “trickle down” effect that having access to no-cost food & supplies has for families struggling to pay for their other basic needs such as heat & housing.
This year’s final numbers: 45,820 pounds of food along with $8000.57 in cash/check/grocery gift card donations was collected. The Front Royal/Warren County community certainly stepped up to the plate to help their neighbors this year.
