June 14, 1998

A capital campaign for a new Food Resources Inc. warehouse will get under way Tuesday, June 16, at 5 p.m. at the current headquarters at 930A Eldridge Drive.

The planned 10,000-square-foot building will be owned by the non-profit corporation and built on land in the Hagerstown Industrial Park, according to Brad Sell, director.

"Currently we are in a rented building on rented land," Sell said.

Richard W. Phoebus will be chairman of the "Feed The Need" campaign.

"We've already started the campaign and have received some nice contributions," Phoebus said.

Businesses and individuals will be solicited for contributions during the campaign.

Food Resources Inc. is the area's nonprofit food warehouse from which other charitable organizations can obtain food for their feeding programs for the needy.

Food is donated or bought in bulk and stored at the warehouse.

Light refreshments will be served.
