2nd Annual Hancock County Food Drive
Thank You Hancock County! This years County-Wide Food Drive was an amazing success!
A total of 114 sites from 22 towns in Hancock County collected and donated food. The grand total amount of food collected was 12,350 items. We far surpassed our goal of 10,000 items! This is a HUGE increase from last year (when we collected approx. 7,500 items)
Without the help and support of everyone involved in this effort, this amazing outcome could not have been accomplished.
Thanks to support from the Maine Community Foundation and the United Way of Eastern Maine, each food item will be matched by $1.00, up to $10,000! All food and money raised will go to Hancock County food pantries and community meal sites.
