Recently, Phoenixville's collected and delivered about 1,000 food items to (PACS) for its food bank.
The drive kicked off on Nov. 1 and ended on 11/11/11, and during those 11 days there was a specific goal of collecting $50 of food per day. The drive also collected $550, which was used daily to purchase food using only locally run food stores.
In addition to other donations, the drive was helped out by a $194 Neighbors in Need offering and $111.11 from another special offering.
On top of the $50 per day and the large donation box of food, the church also threw in another $100 for PACS.
