Lakeside Title Company is so pleased to be involved again this year with the Anne Arundel County Association of Realtors (AACAR) group as they strive to raise more money and provide more food for the needy than ever before through a program called Harvest for the Hungry. Lakeside Title will have collection boxes at their branch offices for those who wish to drop off non-perishables for the drive. Lakeside Title will deliver the collected items to the Food Bank.
Harvest for the Hungry began in 1987. Two gentlemen, Rich Dobry and Larry Adams who worked for Coldwell Banker (owned by Sears, then) started this food drive. Rich is still very involved and now works for REmax Advantage and AACAR. He’s the guiding force behind the success of this drive every year. This is not just a holiday food drive but a year-round effort.
It’s now so large, all the schools are involved in a Kids Helping Kids campaign as well as so many businesses, sports teams, well, you name it. Everyone is banding together to provide food for those less fortunate being served by the 103 pantries throughout the county.
There’s also a kick-off event coming up November 16 in at Cheeseburger in Paradise in Pasadena for anyone who’d like to get their business or organization in on this year’s food drive. http://www.cheeseburgerinparadise.com/.

Remember in this season of giving that nobody in America should go without the most basic necessity of food.
