Thanksgiving Canned Food Drive Ends November 12

From manassascity.org:

"Can you Imagine? - No food to place on your table for Thanksgiving? - A child going to bed hungry? - A local community food pantry with not enough food for those in need?"

"NOW, can you imagine a Thanksgiving Food Drive that could provide 5,000 canned food items to the Manassas SERVE/NVFS food pantry."

Prince William Hospital is sponsoring a Thanksgiving Canned Food Drive (November 1 - 12, 2010) in partnership with Fire and Rescue Departments from the Cities of Manassas and Manassas Park and the County of Prince William, and Manassas Volunteer Fire Company. Donated items will be provided to SERVE/NVFS food pantry.

Please help by donating canned food during this holiday season to support the needs of the community.
