The food drive at Sheetz will benefit the Indiana County Community Action Program’s food bank.

Sheetz, located at 768 Wayne Ave., will host a charity food drive 3-6 p.m. Wednesday.

Canned goods and nonperishable food items can be donated, and donors will receive a Sheetz T-shirt while supplies last with a limit of one per donor. 

The food drive is held at this time because it is the end of the academic year. 

Students moving or cleaning their rooms can donate their remaining food to charity instead of throwing it away. 

“Donations will help support the nearly 1.6 million people struggling with hunger in Pennsylvania,” Sheetz said in a March 24 news release. 

The food drive will benefit the Salvation Army of Indiana County’s food program and the Indiana County Community Action Program’s (ICCAP) food bank.

According to Salvation Army’s website, the organization assists approximately 30 million Americans each year. 

“Eighty-two cents of every dollar spent is used to support those services in 5,000 communities nationwide,” the website said.

According to Salvation Army’s website, the ICCAP is operated all by volunteers and regularly provides a box of food to families to help provide better nutrition when food costs are high. 

They also have an emergency food pantry network for families or people who need food on a regular basis.

Sheetz is “a proud partner of Feeding America.” 

“Sheetz is committed to helping people in the communities they serve who struggle with hunger,” according to the March 24 news release.
