All of the food from the Parade food drive was taken to Chesapeake Christian Center and sorted by our food volunteers. This is always a great time after the hustle bustle of the parade to look at the food that we were able to collect and realize how many families we will be helping over the holidays. Our 7 local food pantries are very grateful for the donation. I want to thank everyone who helped with this food drive: Lauer’s Supermarket and Bakery and Gable Signs and Grapics for their efforts in collecting before the Parade, the Northeast High School Football Team who walks in the parade, loads and unloads all of the food, and of course Chesapeake Christian Center for giving us their hall to sort. The food sorting is done by volunteers from Magothy United Methodist Church, Our Lady of the Chesapeake, Community United Methodist Church, Chesapeake Christian Center, Emmanuel Lutheran Church and the Interact Club from Northeast High School. This process goes so quickly with all of the volunteers from these churches so thank you so much for your support of the PBA food drive. I want to thank everyone who donated food for this worthwhile endeavor and know that you are helping someone in Pasadena have a nicer holiday. Pasadena has great people who are always willing to help.
