Gathering of the Vibes Food Drive
The 2008 Gathering of the Vibes will open its gates tomorrow to Weekend Pass holders. Folks preparing to attend the festival should think about participating in the non-perishable food and hygiene item drive, with proceeds directed to the Bridgeport Office of Veterans Affairs Food Pantry and the Bridgeport Department on Aging Food Pantry. Acceptable high demand non-perishable items include: baby formula, baby food, canned vegetables, macaroni & cheese, pasta and sauce, canned soups and canned non-perishable meat. Folks who donate will be eligible for a number of prizes, while the individual who provides the largest donation by weight will score a pair of tickets to the 2009 Vibes. The primary food and hygiene drive collection station will be located in the Non-Profit Organization Village within East Camping with an unstaffed donation station located in West Camping.
