2014 Food Drive all time best
Over 109,520 cans and counting! Thank you to all volunteers who helped to provide food and donations to over 35 local shelters and food banks!
A letter from Rick Gannon
"Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds".
It might have been better used for the efforts of more than 1500 people who braved the elements to collect , sort and deliver 109,520 cans of food for over 35 Washington Area food shelters Saturday.
The 27th annual Greg Gannon Canned Food Drive was the most successful drive we have ever had. It always amazes me to see the number of people who show up every year to join ranks in supporting our efforts. However, this year the number of new families that joined in this wonderful tradition started by my brother Greg's family 27 years ago was extraordinary.
Congratulations and THANK YOU to the leaders of the 5 different GGCFD drives and all of the team coordinators. My brother always said that one person makes a difference and collectively 1500 individuals came together Saturday to help those families in need.
Peace, and have a wonderful Holiday Season!
Congrats to the hundreds of volunteers who helped with St. Patrick's food drive on November 15th! They collected over 16,000 cans- amazing!!!
