Kent County Public Safety Department Holds Food Drive

Posted:

DOVER, Del. - The holidays are quickly approaching and several groups and organizations are coming together to give back.

The Kent County Department of Public Safety held an event on Wednesday called 'Pack the Paramedic Truck' food drive at Redner's on Greentree Drive in Dover.

"We've always wanted to help the public out. With economic times as difficult as they are, there are a lot of needy people out there," said Captain John Tinger with the Kent County Department of Public Safety.

Tinger says this was a great opportunity to give back.

"We were looking for 300 pounds of food and I think we reached that," said Tinger.

They are seeking non-perishable foods, such as canned goods, instant mashed potatoes, turkey gravy, macaroni and cheese, spaghetti and more.

The collected food will be donated to the Delaware Food Bank. For a complete list of donations, visit www.fbd.org.

Anyone can drop off food from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday at Redner's, 25 Greentree Drive, Dover.
