Barberton is wrapping up the Community Food Drive by the City of Barberton and most of its business. Late last year, Barberton initiated a food drive for non-perishable foods and toiletries. The event allowed local companies to step up and help by providing drop off locations throughout the city where residents could contribute items.
The contributions went to local nonprofits like the Salvation Army of Barberton and BACM (Barberton Area Community Ministries) and stocked the shelves. The event was such a success the City of Barberton plans to host another event mid-year 2019.
