CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. — State funding cuts have food pantries pleading for donations, so local American Legion Riders groups are responding with the American Legion Riders Food Pantry Ride to benefit food pantries in Franklin County.
American Legion Riders Post 517 of Mercersburg, Pa., will join American Legion Riders throughout the county to raise money for South Central Community Action Program’s six county food pantries, said Amy Kline, secretary of American Legion Riders.
The ride is Saturday, July 28. Registration is between 9 and 10 a.m. at the St. Thomas (Pa.) Food Pantry at the St. Thomas United Methodist Church, 360 St. Thomas-Edenville Road, St. Thomas.
“There are people in our community that are hungry,” Kline said. “I want to do everything I can to help with this terrible problem in our local community.”
