Canned and nonperishable food items will be collected this Sunday at the Maryland Symphony Orchestra's 11th annual holiday concert at the Maryland Theatre, beginning at 3 p.m.
The effort by Food Resources Inc. is intended to increase the amount of food that will be available this holiday season for the needy in Washington County.
Wolf Furniture on Leitersburg Pike is holding a Christmas tree decorating contest to benefit Food Resources.
Through Dec. 22, customers may vote for their favorite tree using nonperishable foods as "ballots," which will go to the regional nonprofit food warehouse, according to Brad Sell, Food Resources Inc. executive director.
Food Resources operates a 10,000-square foot food warehouse and provides services to 61 charities and churches in the region for their feeding programs.
