Barrels of Love
The 8th Annual Barrels of Love, a non-perishable food drive sponsored by Morgan County Industrials that CMA DE Plant is a proud member of, started on February 14th and ran through March 1st.
Donations would go to support the following Morgan County Agencies:
- Committee on Church Cooperation
- Salvation Army
- Backpack Programs for the School Systems which provide food to school children in need to take home with them and help support a more nutritional diet
After every holiday season, local food bank shelves become depleted. The “Barrels of Love” program helps these non-profit pantries by supplying stock back up all the way through the summer months.
CMA DE Plant donated 2,533 non-perishable items – two vans full of food!! Goods included peanut butter, canned meats, soups, ramen noodles, mac and cheese, grits, pasta, pop-top food items, drink boxes, canned fruit and vegetables, flour, sugar, and cooking oil. Combined with the community, a total of 88,484 non-perishable food items was collected for Barrels of Love to help those in need.
We are humbled by everyone’s generosity and LOVE shown in this project, and we are proud of our CMA DE Plant family for all that they have done.
