Sappey’s donation drive great success, benefits five charities

KENNETT SQUARE, Nov. 22 – State Rep. Christina Sappey held a charitable item donation drive on Saturday, Nov. 16, which received donations from over 100 local residents for the Brandywine SPCA, David’s Drive 831, the Chester County Food Bank, Marines Toys for Tots and Green Drop.

“I am continually impressed by the love and generosity of the people in our community,” Sappey said.  “These donations will help feed families, provide a child with a toy for the holidays and ensure the health of pets looking for their forever homes. Thank you to those who donated, your kindness will certainly go a long way.”

Many attendees provided items to all the organizations on site.  David’s Drive 831, a local veteran support organization, collected items for veterans receiving care at the Coatesville, Lebanon, and Southeastern Veterans Centers.

"We ended up with a truckload of items that are already helping veterans in need. The generosity of the 158th demonstrates how much we care for veterans. Veterans deserve our support and they feel your kindness,” David Turner, founder and president of David’s Drive 831, said. “Thank you Representative Sappey and staff for giving David's Drive 831 the opportunity to show the veterans in this community that they are not forgotten, thank you!"
