County Executive Leopold Seeks Donations for Homeless Resource Day and Food Bank
Helping out is easier than ever
Annapolis, MD (February 24, 2012) - County Executive John R. Leopold is urging citizens to participate in a joint food drive to benefit Homeless Resource Day and Healthy Harvest for the Hungry.
“Homeless Resource Day has been a very successful in helping people get back on their feet and off the street,” County Executive Leopold said. “People can obtain a host of services, from something as simple as a haircut to assistance with job training, job placement and housing. This year we are making it even easier for the public to donate food and other items to help individuals and families in need.”
Children and adults can access transportation, medical, housing, and job assistance, as well as personal hygiene and quality of life resources at Homeless Resource Day, which will be held on March 31 at Glen Burnie High School. Collection boxes will be available at the Arundel Center and all four Heritage office buildings on Riva Road in Annapolis for Homeless Resource Day.

You can also participate in the Healthy Harvest for the Hungry drive by leaving specified items by your mailbox from March 3 to March 10. Your letter carrier will pick them up and deliver them to the Anne Arundel County Food Bank. Items will also be accepted at the Annapolis, West County, North County, Crofton and Severna Park libraries.
