Royer’s annual food drive collected 2,467 pounds of non-perishable items for the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank and the Greater Berks Food Bank.

From June 20-27, “Royer’s Stems Hunger” asked customers to drop off donations at any of our stores. In return, donors received a free carnation for each food item, up to a maximum of six carnations per family per visit.

Also contributing was Drayer Physical Therapy Institute, which participated in the food drive for the second year in a row. Drayer’s corporate office in Hummelstown and outpatient centers in Camp Hill, Carlisle, Colonial Park, Enola, Harrisburg and Mechanicsburg collected 307 pounds.

In its five-year history, Royer’s Stems Hunger has collected nearly five tons of food.
