Joey Swentosky, an 11 year old from Bellefonte and his family are holding a drive-by food drive at the Bellefonte Little League Fields from 12:00 – 3:00 PM on Saturday, May 9.
Canned goods will be dropped off into bins and immediately picked up by the Faith Centre staff so it can go to those in need as soon as possible.
Last year, Swentosky’s goal was to collect 300 pounds of food and residents came together from across the region to donate over 700 pounds. He usually sets a new donation goal to top each year.
He was inspired by a teacher to organize these annual food drives and, in previous years, he’s collected donations from school, teammates, restaurants and by riding his bike door-to-door. However, that won’t be happening this year because of social distancing rules.
