Lower Pottsgrove Police Launch Thanksgiving Food Drive

SANATOGA PA – Non-perishable food items and Giant Supermarket gift cards are being collected through Oct. 31 (2020) by the Lower Pottsgrove Police Department to create memorable Thanksgiving meals for families facing financial hardship. The effort helps support a program of the Montgomery County Office of Children and Youth, the department said.

Needed as donations are cans of green beans, corn, sweet potatoes or yams, turkey gravy, and cranberry sauce; boxes of instant mashed potatoes, biscuit or corn bread mixes, stuffing mixes, and dessert mixes. Donated Giant cards, in amounts of $10 to $15, will be used by families to purchase a turkey.

A donation drop box is located at department headquarters, 2199 Buchert Rd., and is available 24 hours a day. The department said it offers advance thanks to township residents for their support of families in need.
