The Coming of Age Youth delivered 1,072 pounds of food July 23 to the Doylestown Food Pantry. An additional $124.87 will be sent as cash. During the drop off a pantry worker said, “this is the biggest donation we’ve had in a long time.” Thank you to everyone who helped make the food drive successful!
