A big thanks to everyone who contributed to this year’s Royer’s Stems Hunger food drive.
With your help, we collected 1,706 pounds of nonperishable items, bringing the food drive’s seven-year total to more than six tons.
Royer’s Stems Hunger, which took place June 17-July 1, collected 163 pounds for the Greater Berks Food Bank and 1,543 pounds for the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank.
For each nonperishable food item, donors received a free carnation.
Besides Royer’s 16 stores, the food drop-off locations included Drayer Physical Therapy Institute outpatient centers in Carlisle, Dillsburg, Harrisburg, Hummelstown, Lancaster, Mount Joy and York.
