Food Collections for UMACC
As many of you know, each month, the KOPSC Snow Angels adopt a charitable organization in the area. It is a great way for our club to give back to needy people in the community, especially right now with so many being unemployed due to the pandemic.
For October, we will be collecting for the Upper Merion Area Community Cupboard (UMACC). Vicki Meitus brought this need to our attention, and she volunteers her time there. Thank you Vicki! See the list of items needed below, and if you can help, it would be greatly appreciated by those in need.
Since we are meeting virtually, this makes things a little harder; however, several members have stepped up to be our drop-off sites to make that easier. Just contact the individuals listed below for their address. Tubs will be placed by their doors for an easy no-contact drop-off. The items will then be picked up weekly and delivered to the different food banks for each month.
Drop-Off Locations and Points of Contact
Willow Grove/Ft. Washington areas
King of Prussia area
West Chester area
High Demand Items Needed
Shampoo and cream rinse/conditioner
Other Items Needed
Canned chicken or tuna
Boxes of small snack bags/cookies/trail mix
Pasta sauce (all sizes, jars and cans)
Canned meals (ravioli, spaghetti, chili, etc.)
Thanks in advance for helping the local folks who need food and basic supplies and count on that community cupboard during these tough times. Vicki tells us that UMACC is also looking for volunteers for 1 1/2 hour time slots on Tuesdays from 9 to 11:30 AM or 4:45 to 7:15 PM. They need volunteers to help pack bags of food or take bags and perishable items out to the patron pickup line. Everything is done with safe social distancing to keep our volunteers and patrons safe and healthy! Check their website (http://umacc.org) for additional information. Feel free to contact Vicki if you would like to know more what the different jobs entail.
In November, we will be collecting for Philabundance. KOPSC always does a fabulous job supporting our local charities! Please help if you can! Much appreciated! Stay safe!
