Participate In The Halterman’s Canned Food Drive

November 4th, 2019 by

As we approach the holidays, many of us look forward to Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners with the family. However, there are many people here in Monroe County that aren’t able to afford food on their table, and this season of giving highlights the need for their community’s support.

This November, Halterman’s Toyota is partnering with Joe’s Outreach Food Pantry to hold a month-long canned food drive. There’s always a need for nonperishable goods, so check your pantry, add a few extra items to your grocery list, and come by our dealership to donate food to a good cause.

When and Where

We will be taking canned food donations here at our dealership from now until the end of November. Halterman’s Toyota is located at 1741 Paradise Trail Route 447, East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania 18301. If you have any questions about the food drive, feel free to contact us.

What to Bring

The pantry appreciates a variety of goods, from hearty stews to nutritious beans and vegetables. Remember that some cans come with pop-top lids, making things easier on the pantry and their visitors. Consider picking up canned foods like these the next time you go grocery shopping:

  • Beans
  • Soups and stews
  • Fruit (in juice, not syrup)
  • Yams
  • Tuna or salmon (in water)
  • Vegetables (low or no added salt)
  • Chicken or turkey
  • Cranberry sauce

As an added bonus, those who bring in 5 or more cans will get a $10 coupon off any service!

Joe’s Outreach Food Pantry

The food drive will help stock the shelves at Joe’s Outreach Food Pantry in Minisink Hills. The pantry is named after JoAnn Pierri, who inspired others in her community through her dedication to helping those in need. Now, Joe’s Outreach serves Monroe and Pike Counties with food and other essentials to continue the spirit of giving that Pierri demonstrated every day.

If you would like to donate after the drive has ended, you can still bring your canned goods to their pantry. They are located at 114 Academy Drive, Minisink Hills, Pennsylvania 18341.
