Media Food Bank – Request for Assistance

Dear Neighbors,

The Media Food Bank has issued a request for donations as they are running low on supplies and food. To assist in “social distancing”, I have volunteered to help consolidate donations and deliver them to the food bank every Thursday morning.  So, if you’d like to make a donation to the Media Food Bank, please feel free to drop off donations on my front porch (there is a large plastic bin on the porch) at 302 Melanies Way, Wallingford, PA  19086. If you need the donations picked up, please text me at 610.213.3133 and I’ll stop by your house (for “social distancing purposes”, you can put the bags in the back of my SUV or you can leave them outside for pickup).

 Below are the most needed items:

 Cardboard boxes for pre-packing food

Cleaning supplies

Grocery store gift cards

Pet food

Feminine hygiene products

Cereal

Canned Soup

Chicken broth

Any form of rice, but especially microwavable pouches

Spam

Kind Regards,

Kevin Henry
