Jolly Trolley Food Drive sets new record
More than $3,000 and 2,573 pounds of food were collected during the Jolly Trolley food drive hosted by Metro Bus last week. Metro Bus partnered with Royal Tire and Townsquare Media to collect donations for local food shelves.
Since the winter drive began in 2011, more than 22,703 pounds and over $15,475 has been collected. This year’s cash donations were at an all-time high thanks to a generous last-minute from North Central Bus Sales and an increased donation from Royal Tire.
The food drive benefitted Catholic Charities Emergency Services, Salvation Army and Promise Neighborhood.
