13th Annual Move the Mountain Food Drive

The 13th Annual Move the Mountain Food Drive aiming to collect more than 30,000 pounds of food for the North East community.  

Volunteers stationed at four spots throughout North East and spent the day collecting canned goods and monetary donations.  Many groups helped out, including the Lake Erie Hockey Players, Girls and Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts, Youth Groups and Church Groups.  Local schools have also been raising funds through Penny Wars.

Co-Organizer, Melissa Garfield, says, "Everybody at some point needs help and this is our way to give back. It makes a difference in people's lives whether they're receiving the donations, or they're donating, or they're volunteering."

Welch's not only donated goods, but also a truck for the collected items to be dropped off at the North East Food Pantry.
