WSFS is encouraging its associates, customers, and community members to donate non-perishable food items to provide meals for the food-insecure. Delaware banking locations will be designated as convenient community food deposit centers as part of the Bank’s annual Fall/Winter Food Drive.
Now through December 31, WSFS will collect nonperishable food items and donate them to Sunday Breakfast Mission.
“The need is great, so the collection of nonperishable food from WSFS Bank is critical,” said Rev. Tom Laymon, Sr. Pastor, President, Sunday Breakfast Mission. “More than 2,000 families throughout Delaware will have a fruitful Thanksgiving and holiday season because of this great food drive.”
The global pandemic has exacerbated the need for food for many, with more than 54 million people estimated to be food insecure in 2020, according to Feeding America. The 2020 projected food insecurity rate in Delaware (17.8%) exceeds the nationwide projection (16.7%).
If you are able to contribute to the drive and need to find a drop off location, you can search by ZIP code here.
