Kathy Barnette Hosts Food Drive with ABC Urgent Care

Kathy Barnette is teaming up with ABC Urgent Care to host a non-perishable food drive on Saturday, January 14th, between Noon and 2 PM. Food will be distributed at:

ABC Urgent Care, 1010 Cottman Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19111

“Like many Pennsylvanians, I have vivid memories of standing in front of an empty refrigerator, wondering where the next meal would come from,” Kathy noted in her introduction to this event. “There is no more vulnerable feeling than not being able to feed your family,” she said.

Barnette is partnering with ABC Urgent Care to distribute food to our community. It is a great opportunity for Philadelphians to come together, meet our neighbors, and care for those in need, she said.

All are welcome, especially those who are in need. If you would like to support these efforts, please consider spreading the word to others and/or volunteering this Saturday to help distribute food.

Barnette, a Huntingdon Valley resident, ran for Congress in Montgomery County and for the U.S. Senate. A Republican, she is active in the pro-life movement and is an author and political commentator.

Republican Committee of Chester County Charis Community Outreach Food Drive

From a press release

This year we have much to be grateful for. However, many of our neighbors are finding themselves impacted by high inflation and cost increases. We are very fortunate to have local non-governmental organizations that collect food and essentials throughout Chester County.

In November the RCCC is partnered with two local non-governmental organizations to collect food in Chester County.  One such NGO, It Takes A Village Community (Chester County), provides community food boxes throughout our county from Honey Brook and Modena to Downingtown and West Chester. It is a very easy and convenient way to donate.

Consider your generous donation of much-needed non-perishable food items and essentials at an NGO of your choice. Every item donated helps real families throughout Chester County and fulfills the spirit of helping your neighbor.

In this spirit, Thanksgiving has become a day when Americans extend a helping hand to the less fortunate.  As former President Ronald Reagan said, “Long before there was a government welfare program, this spirit of voluntary giving was ingrained in the American character. Americans have always understood that, truly, one must give in order to receive. This should be a day of giving as well as a day of thanks.”

Members participated through their generous donations of much-needed non-perishable food items.  Every item donated helps real families throughout Chester County and fulfills the spirit of voluntary giving President Reagan proclaimed so many years ago, but remains true today.

Together we all can help to change hearts and minds in Chester County, while making sure those in need are fed.
