Shippenville, PA- The “Food From the Heart” food drive is a local event put on by Forever Media Northwest Pa that helps support local food banks and pantries all across Northwestern Pa. This year, Deer Creek Winery served as an event sponsor as well as a drop off location at their main winery in Shippenville, Pa and their five outlet locations. For the entire month of February, all six stores promoted the drive to customers and through social media to collect non-perishable food donations for the drive. The company went above and beyond just the collection of non-perishable items but also held a tip donation night at their Shippenville location. Staff graciously donated all tips received for the evening and Deer Creek matched the amount to donate $550.00 to the food drive!
Monetary donations from the food drive were given to The Pointe Drop-In Center in Oil City, Pa and donations of non-perishable items were taken to Charitable Deeds in Knox, Pa.
