ABATE food run benefits Oxford Neighborhood Services Center

06/25/2013 05:10PM, Published by ACL, Categories: In Print


The Chester County Chapter of ABATE will be holding its 24th annual food run to benefit the Oxford Neighborhood Services Center on July 6.

The group will gather in the parking lot of the Shoppes at Jenner's Village on Baltimore Pike and depart at 1 p.m. to deliver the food to the Neighborhood Services Center. All those interested in participating in the food run are asked to bring non-perishable items, such as cereal, boxed foods, rice, boxed meals, drink mixes, or mayonnaise, mustard, and ketchup, as well as disposable diapers, to the collection point.

After the food run, the local chapter of ABATE will be holding its annual picnic, with everyone who participated in the run invited.

Chester County ABATE organizes this event each year in memory of the fallen members of the chapter. For more information on how to contribute or participate, contact Jesse at 443-553-4549 or e-mail wizard13@zoominternet.net.
