Eric and Jen, the owners of Boneyard Joe's in Pottstown, contacted me thru this blog when they heard about our Fill the Media Lab food drive because they wanted to help. When I called Eric, he was enthusiastic and thanked me for letting them be a part of this. No, Eric, thank YOU for helping! As the collection efforts have continued, Eric and Jen have been offering discounts to customers for donating items at their location. As if this wasn't enough, they also asked Clothes to Home to become a collection site for the drive and are offering customers discounts if they come in with a business card to show they were at Clothes to Home to donate items. In my opinion, these acts of kindness could not be topped, but then Eric and Jen managed to top themselves by donating enough bulk food items for 150 people to enjoy a spaghetti dinner and also some bulk condensed soup that should feed around the same amount of people. If you read this and happen to stop in to Boneyard Joe's to donate an item (to get the 10% off, say Charlie sent ya!), please thank Eric and Jen for their kindness.
As I mentioned, Clothes to Home in Bechtelsville is now a dropoff location for our Fill the Media Lab food drive. You can drop off human or pet food or laundry detergent there. Their address is: 822B Route 100 in Bechtelsville. It is the shopping center with Dunkin' Donuts and Subway. I have heard really good things about this business from friends, so drop off some of your dirty clothes while you are there! Their hours are:
Monday - Friday: 8:30 am to 6:30 pm
Saturday: 8:30 am to 3pm
As always, thank you so much for your support, as we try to reach 20,000 items to help area Pantries!
