This morning, the Elizabethtown Police Department announced a partnership with Helping Hand of Hope to begin a food drive.
“We’re putting a focus on the 20 year anniversary of September 11th, and really we want to focus on September 12th when everyone kind of came together and banned together as one to help a fellow citizen in need, and that’s really what we’re trying to do here,” stated Public Information officer, Chris Denham.
Since the pandemic, Helping Hand of Hope is now in extreme need of food. They need non-perishable items such as canned goods and hygiene products.
The food drive starts today and will run through September 17th. Donations can be dropped off at Helping Hand of Hope, the Elizabethtown Walmart, or the Elizabethtown Police Department.
