Thank you to everyone who helped make Operation: Food Drop such a success this year! We were able to raise 4,775 pounds of food to benefit United Way of Greater New Bedford's Hunger Heroes Project. The event falls on Family Volunteer Day, and they are encouraging families to come together and support families in need by crafting cards to accompany the Thanksgiving baskets that will be delivered the week of Thanksgiving.

"This is the perfect opportunity for any age to help out! With every Thanksgiving package, we will be including cards made by us! Kids that may not be old enough to help with the food sorting or packaging can help with this! Get the creative juices flowing and get creating!"

Each two-hour shift offers a chance to really connect with your family and a great way to give back to the community as well. Sign up HERE.
