Sherman Theater Horn O’ Plenty Food Drive to Feed Hungry Kids

November 22, 2019, Stroudsburg, PA - In the spirit of Thanks and Giving, the Sherman Theater is
hosting a food drive to benefit the families in the Stroudsburg Area School
District’s BackPack Program to Feed Hungry Kids.  The drive continues
through the Theater's Horn O' Plenty weekend, featuring Railroad Earth
performing on Friday and Saturday, November 29 and 30. Donations of
non-perishable food items can be made at the Sherman Theater, 524 Main Street,
Stroudsburg.  

 

The food
will benefit disadvantaged families with children in Stroudsburg schools. 
As part of the Stroudsburg Area School District’s BackPack Program to Feed
Hungry Kids, food will be sent home with needy students to nourish the children
and their families.  The School District relies on donations from
organizations, businesses, school employees and the community to maintain this
program.

 

Suggested
donations include granola bars, peanut butter or cheese cracker packs, rice,
pasta, canned soup, canned vegetables and fruit, pasta sauce in plastic jars,
pudding cups, other non-perishable food or grocery store gift cards.  “Any
items that can be donated will greatly help - each one of them will make a difference,”
said Richard Berkowitz, President and CEO of the Sherman Theater. “Our Mission
is to serve our community and this is one of the ways we will do that this
Thanksgiving season.”  In addition, anyone making a donation will receive
a free ticket to an upcoming show at the Theater.
