In a time not so long ago, when six feet of “social” distance felt like a valley between friends and neighbors, Marshallton Conservation Trust Board Member Cendrine Gemberling devised a plan to bring the community together through a simple but impactful idea: a Valentine’s Day Food Drive. With food banks experiencing an unprecedented need due in large part to the COVID pandemic, this was just one small way that the Marshallton Conservation Trust could step up to help our Chester County neighbors facing food insecurity. And thus began our partnership with the West Chester Food Cupboard. Three food drives later, thanks to the incredible support of our community and a special collaboration with The Goddard School of Marshallton, we have collected 1,527 pounds of food and staples plus almost $3,000 in cash and gift cards through our Valentine’s Day Food Drive. That's a whole lot of love.
As we usher in the warmer months of Spring, we look forward to more opportunities to bring the community together through events such as the Souper Supper in April and Marshallton Memorial Day Parade in May. As always, please visit our website for information on upcoming community events in the Village.
