Food & Toy "DRIVE" October 22 - December 23rd
Date: 10/22/2012 - 12/23/2012
Time: All Day
Location: The AACA Museum - Just off Rte. 39 @ 1 mile from the Hersheypark Complex
The AACA Museum is again teaming up with Carry the Light Ministries of Mechanicsburg to help sponsor a Food & Toy “DRIVE”. The goal of the “DRIVE” will be to provide about 100 (hopefully more) needy families in the community with groceries and toys to help throughout the holiday season. An antique truck will be parked in the Museum’s lobby and we’re looking to fill the truck with items for families in need.
“Were trying to help the families who make just a little too much for the welfare or food bank help, and have to struggle to make the ends meet” stated Pastor Dan Lehman, founder of Carry the Light Ministries. “There are lots of families out there who continually struggle financially and have just a bit too much income to receive public assistance.”
Dan, along with his wife Dolores, are the ”driving” force behind making this community Food & Toy “DRIVE” a great success. In addition to being a co-founder of Carry the Light Ministries, Dan is an avid bus and motorcycle enthusiast and a volunteer at both the Museum of Bus Transportation and the AACA Museum.
Members of the community and Museum visitors can help by donating non-perishable food items (soups, canned goods, boxes of pasta, cans of tuna) or money to purchase groceries or grocery store gift cards. General household items such as bathroom tissue, soap, toothpaste, and home cleaning products are also appreciated for inclusion in the gift packages. Carry the Light Ministries has established a separate account to manage these donations. We are also accepting toys that will be provided to the children in these families for holiday gifts.
Donations of food, toys or money can be made at the following locations:
AACA Museum Carry the Light Ministries
161 Museum Drive 16 Dewalt Drive
Hershey, PA 17033 Mechanicsburg, PA 17050
At the AACA Museum, a donation truck will be parked in the Museum’s lobby from October 22 – December 23 to be filled with donations. The Museum is open daily from 9 AM – 5 PM and is closed on Thanksgiving Day.
