Food bank needs more donations

October 11, 2006

WILLIAMSPORT - Mother Nature handed the Williamsport Food Bank less than great weather for the annual Harvest Hoedown last Saturday.

"We're off between $5,000 and $6,000 and we didn't get as much food because a lot of people didn't come," said Mary Anna Kline, director of the food bank.

Kline said about 7,000 pounds of food were collected Saturday, down from the goal of 10,000 pounds.

And while $7,000 was collected, several bills associated with the hoedown haven't been paid yet which will lower that figure.

Harvest Hoedown is the food bank's largest annual fundraiser, Kline said.

"We hope people will respond to help us," Kline said.

The Williamsport Food Bank is at Zion Lutheran Church, 35 W. Potomac St. The hours are 9 a.m. to noon on Mondays and Thursday.

More information can be obtained by calling 301-223-7260.
