Can you believe it's been 24 years in a row for Cans Across the Park that has helped so many local families through the United Way of Greater New Bedford. This year our collection event will be November 12, from 10 am to 2 pm with a different twist...
We're back at it again for the 24th year in a row! Cans Across the Park, held every year at Buttonwood Park, has continuously helped the United Way of Greater New Bedford stock area food pantries for the holidays.
Our 23rd Annual Cans Across the Park food drive was a giant success! Dozens of community members braved the cold wind and came out to support our annual food drive, dropping off canned goods and non-perishables by the trunk-load.
Our 23rd Annual Cans Across the Park Food Drive returns to Buttonwood Park on Saturday, November 14th. Like the 22 years before it, we'll be collecting non-perishable food items and lining them up from one length of the park to the other.
