The Antique Automobile Club of America (AACA) Museum is teaming up with Carry the Light Ministries of Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania for the fifth consecutive year to help sponsor a Food & Toy "DRIVE".
Last year, this "DRIVE" was able to assist more than 100 families in the Central Pennsylvania Area with groceries and toys over the holiday season. With your help, we're hoping to increase the number of families this year. An antique pick-up truck is parked in the Museum's lobby and we're looking to fill the truck with non-perishable food, household items, toiletries and toy items for families in need.
"We’re trying to help the families who make just a little too much for the welfare or food bank help, and have to struggle to make the ends meet" stated Pastor Dan Lehman, founder of Carry the Light Ministries. "There are lots of families out there who continually struggle financially and have just a bit too much income to receive public assistance."
Members of the community and Museum visitors can help by donating non-perishable food and household items (soups, canned goods, boxes of pasta, cans of tuna, etc.) or money to purchase groceries or grocery store gift cards. General household items such as bathroom tissue, soap, toothpaste, and home cleaning products are also appreciated for inclusion in the gift packages. Carry the Light Ministries has established a separate account to manage these donations. We are also accepting toys that will be provided to the children in these families for holiday gifts.
Donations of food, toys or money can be made at the following locations:
