The need is always there, but so are people who care.
During April, Palm Beach residents gave more than a ton of non-perishable food – 2,215 pounds, to be exact – and $1,500 to help feed families struggling to get by.
The sixth annual Empty Your Pantry Food Drive concluded Friday. The Palm Beach Daily News, Palm Beach Fire-Rescue and Town of Palm Beach United Way launched the effort on April 2. Drop-off points were set up at the Daily News office, the town’s three fire stations, and at the United Way office at the Palm Beach Towers.
