November 9, 2018, Stroudsburg, PA - In the spirit of Thanks and Giving, the Sherman Theater is hosting a food drive to benefit the families in the Stroudsburg Area School District’s BackPack Program to Feed Hungry Kids. The drive continues through the Theater's Horn O' Plenty weekend, featuring Railroad Earth performing on Friday and Saturday, November 23 and 24. Donations of non-perishable food items can be made at the Sherman Theater, 524 Main Street, Stroudsburg. Additional drop-off sites are Gray Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram at 894 N. 9th Street, Main Street JukeBox at 606 Main Street, and Ted’s Used Cars at 1723 W. Main Street, Stroudsburg.
The food will benefit disadvantaged families with children in Stroudsburg schools. As part of the Stroudsburg Area School District’s BackPack Program to Feed Hungry Kids, food will be sent home with needy students to nourish the children and their families. The School District relies on donations from organizations, businesses, school employees and the community to maintain this program.
Suggested donations include granola bars, peanut butter or cheese cracker packs, rice, pasta, canned soup, canned vegetables and fruit, pasta sauce in plastic jars, pudding cups, other non-perishable foods or grocery store gift cards. “Any items that can be donated will greatly help - each one of them will make a difference,” said Richard Berkowitz, President and CEO of the Sherman Theater. “Our Mission is to serve our community and this is one of the ways we will do that this Thanksgiving season.” In addition, anyone making a donation will receive a free ticket to an upcoming show at the Theater.
The Sherman Theater is a non-profit theater located in downtown Stroudsburg, PA, committed to strengthening the community by producing culturally-diverse, nationally-known professional acts and festivals at the theater and satellite locations for people of all ages, by providing an opportunity for local artists to perform, and by creating economic development in the region.
