With emails and blog posts daily reporting contributions to the Fill the Media Lab community food drive, here's an update of where we stand:
As of Wednesday, 1,943 food items had been donated toward our goal of 20,000. Bottles of detergent collected were at 120 toward a goal of 1,000.
Evan Brandt, who blogs at Digital Notebook, delivered several cartons of granola bars, snack containers of macaroni and cheese, fruit cups and beefaroni to Project Backpack on Wednesday.
The Mercury facilities manager Bob Morris delivered several dozen bottles of detergent Thursday morning to the Boyertown Area Multi-Service, which reported a shortage of that item in their food pantry.
A large donation of food, as well as $100 from a single cash donation, will be delivered to the Cluster Outreach Center in Pottstown on Friday.
