SEPTA Food Drive Extended

from the inbox:

SEPTA passengers have more time to help fight hunger in the Delaware Valley -- The Authority's third annual "Stop Hunger at Your Station" food drive to benefit Philabundance has been extended through Friday, June 24, 2011.

Donations of canned and boxed goods are being collected in marked barrels at more than 50 designated stations throughout the transit system.

In 2010, SEPTA’s passengers and employees contributed the equivalent of 19.6 tons of food, doubling the 2009 donations. To meet the Authority’s goal of 20 tons of food for 2011, the community can help by contributing the following items:

* Canned or shelf stabilized tuna
* Canned pasta
* Canned beef ravioli
* Creamy peanut butter (plastic containers only, please)
* Jelly (plastic containers only, please)

The public can also make a donation to Philabundance online to help feed neighbors in need. Any monetary contribution will count toward the total collected through the SEPTA 2011 campaign.
