The 18th Annual Caring & Sharing Food Drive will be held November 16 – 18 at the Dover Hannaford on Central Avenue. With family-centered events, live entertainment, giveaways and donation challenges, Caring & Sharing is the Seacoast’s largest food drive – providing meals to hundreds of area residents who might not otherwise have enough to eat.
Non-perishables food items and money in the form of gift cards will be accepted over the four-day period, all benefiting 21 local charities in the Seacoast to help with the holidays.
This year C&J Bus Lines is teaming up once again with our friends at Federal Savings Bank to help make this year’s Caring & Sharing food drive a success. Not only are both organizations sponsors of the events, but as an extra incentive to help increase donations, C&J and Federal Savings Bank have generously agreed to donate fifty cents for each non-perishable food item dropped off at Caring and Sharing headquarters during the morning hours of Friday, November 17.
We challenge all local businesses and community members to participate. Every can counts!
To help raise awareness, radio stations WTSN 98.1 & 98.7 The Bay will be broadcasting live from the Dover Hannaford; and donations will be accepted at a number of Hannaford locations throughout the Seacoast, including both Hannafords in Rochester, the Hannaford on Grapevine Dr. in Dover, and Hannafords in Exeter and North Berwick.
So take a minute to clean out your cabinets and swing by a participating Hannaford near you. Every single donation helps local families to put food on the table this winter.
