Look for signs at various sponsor locations of the River 953’s Camping for Hunger campaign around Front Royal and Warren County.

These locations can accept non-perishable food donations for the Congregational Community Action Project (C-Cap) Camping for Hunger campaign and we thank you for the donations.

Where monetary donations are important in the effort to feed the hungry in Warren County C-Cap’s Board of Director’s President Larry Elliot stressed that food donations are just as important.

Those donations enable a family to pick up a box of food immediately if needed.
