CATA “Food for Fare” drive occurs next week

November 27, 2013 

The Centre Area Transportation Authority and State College Area Food Bank are holding a “Food for Fare” canned food drive Wednesday and Dec 5.

CATA riders donating a canned food or other non-perishable food item when they board may ride fare-free for that trip.

All proceeds from the food drive will benefit the local food banks and their distribution activities for those in need this holiday season. Last year raised 803 pounds of non-perishable food.

New, unwrapped toys for those children less fortunate this holiday season will be collected through Toys for Tots at both CATA offices (2081 W. Whitehall Road and 108 E. Beaver Ave.) through noon Dec. 16.

For more information, call 814-238-CATA.
