(Bucks County, PA)— Warminster Food Bank teamed up with Klinger Middle School and Centennial School District for a Stuff the School Bus food drive today from 9:00 a.m. until 12 noon at the Giant Supermarket, 720 W. Street Road, Warminster, PA.

Area residents and Klinger and Centennial School District families and staff were invited to participate and donate nonperishable food and grocery items. Donations of cash or Giant gift cards were also be accepted. A record-breaking 2465 pounds of groceries were collected, along with $821 in cash and Giant gift cards. Items collected will be provided to people experiencing food insecurity in Bucks and Montgomery Counties.

Centennial School District provided two school buses for the event and volunteers from Klinger Middle School, including their mascot Clipper, were on hand to work with Giant employees, Food Bank volunteers and Giant customers and staff to fill the vehicle with groceries. Warminster Food Bank serves over 800 individuals/200 families each month and more than 7500 individuals/1800 families each year in the communities it serves. In addition, high school volunteers from the Doylestown chapter of People for Urban and Rural Education (PURE), were on hand at the Warminster Food Bank to help weigh and sort the donated items.

“We are extremely grateful to Klinger Middle School, Centennial School District and Giant of Warminster for their tremendous support of this event,” said Mike Cerino, director, Warminster Food Bank. “During the summer months our donations go down, so partnerships like this one are particularly meaningful. Klinger and Centennial students and their families should be very proud of the impact this event will have on families that rely on the support of Warminster food Bank.”

“At our school, we often talk about service to the community,” said Martin Hayes, principal, Klinger Middle School. “Our students and their families take great pride in giving back to their community. The Stuff the Bus food drive is what service to the community is all about and it is an honor to work with the Warminster Food Bank in support of our neighbors in need.”
