Food Drive Procedures:

**Needed items for the Food Pantry include cold and hot cereal, juice, beans, rice, and other non-perishable food items.

Please consider participating in the 90th Anniversary Celebration drive as our goal is to have 90 donors give the gift of life by donating blood and to share the spirit of the upcoming holidays by donating food items for the needy. All food items will be donated to the Mid-County United Ministries Captain Joseph A. Mattingly Food Pantry, located in the Mid-County Service Center, 2424 Reedie Drive, Wheaton, Maryland. The Food Pantry is named in honor of Captain Mattingly, a 28-year veteran Montgomery County Police officer, who was tragically killed in the line of duty on September 13, 2003 resulting from a single police vehicle crash. Captain Mattingly, assigned to the 4th District - Wheaton Station, was known for his community service and outreach efforts as well as having a big heart to help underprivileged struggling community members. His goal was to establish a communitybased food pantry to help those in need. As such, his goal was achieved
