Businesses in King of Prussia came together for a great cause this November for King of Prussia District’s 11th annual Holiday Food Drive, produced in partnership with Conlin’s Print.

The month-long drive benefited Upper Merion Area Community Cupboard (UMACC), which serves anyone who is hungry or food insufficient and lives within Upper Merion Area School District.

The food drive ended with a BANG on November 30 with the Stuff-A-Truck drive-through food drive at King of Prussia Town Center.

Despite the brisk day, Starbucks and Kilwin’s kept donors toasty warm and full of tasty treats, with hot coffee, pastries, and chocolate.

Those that donated also were eligible to enter to win a $100 Visa gift card to spend at their favorite King of Prussia business.

The team at Budget Maintenance donated their time and truck to help us collect donation boxes and stuff a 16’ box truck full of non-perishable donations from 10 AM – 3 PM.

Nineteen different businesses hosted twenty-six donation boxes, the largest number of participating businesses to date.

The Upper Merion Area High School Football team also volunteered to lend a hand to unload and sort through the donations at UMACC.

King of Prussia District is proud to announce that the business and resident community donated a grand total of 3,500 lbs of food and goods for UMACC, in addition to $500 donated by Conlin’s Print!

A big thank you to all the participating locations and those who donated.

The KOP community has rallied around UMACC and its mission to support our most vulnerable neighbors. If you did not have a chance to donate, please consider making a donation online.

In October, thanks to the generosity of the sponsors of First Responder Appreciation Week, King of Prussia District were donated $1,000 to each of the three Upper Merion fire stations for fire alarm giveaways and $3,800 to Upper Merion Area Community Cupboard (UMACC).
