Orioles Reach to host annual food & funds drive
The Orioles, along with the Orioles Wives, Oriole Advocates, WJZ-TV and MASN personalities, Von Paris Moving and Storage and the Maryland Food Bank, will hold their 26th annual Food and Funds Drive at Oriole Park at Camden Yards this weekend, June 8-10, during the Orioles’ series with the Philadelphia Phillies. Members of these groups will collect non-perishable food items and monetary donations from fans at each entrance from the time gates open until the middle of the 2nd inning during games this weekend.
All food and funds collected go to the Maryland Food Bank. Fans who cannot attend the games can donate food online at http://www.mdfoodbank.org/oriolesfooddrive . The fan who donates the most online will have the opportunity to throw out a ceremonial first pitch at Sunday’s game.
During last year’s Orioles Food Drive, more than 4,660 pounds of food and $21,000 in cash donations were collected.
