Boyle holding holiday drive for local food banks

PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 7 - State Rep. Kevin Boyle, D-Phila., announced he is holding a food drive to benefit local food banks. 

Non-perishable food donations may be dropped off between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday at either of his offices:

  • 7420 Frankford Ave.
  • 7801-A Hasbrook Ave.

Boyle said food banks often run low during the holiday season when demand is high.

"As the holidays approach, food banks will undoubtedly receive an increase in clients," Boyle said. "It is important now more than ever that we assist those in need."

Boyle said his offices collected more than 200 pounds of food during last year’s food drive and he hopes to collect even more this year.

Anyone with questions should contact Boyle’s office at (215) 331-2600.
