Earth Day Food Drive by the PA AWWA and PWEA YP’s-Collection at Annual Conference on May 7th at Bethlehem Sands

Earth Day Food Drive by the PWEA / PA AWWA YP’s

Happy Earth Day!

 In addition to so many other things, today marks the beginning of the Earth Day Food Drive, co-sponsored by the Young Professional (YP) Committees of PA AWWA and PWEA. The objective is to see which team or workplace group can collect the most non-perishable food items between now and May 9th for donation to a local food bank. See attached and below for specifics…


  • The PA AWWA YP committee will be collecting food items during the PA AWWA Annual Conference on Wednesday, May 7th in Bethlehem. This will be the only “point source” collection location. Please keep in mind that this collection is subject to the weight limit of the vehicles of the YPs able to make a trip to a nearby Bethlehem food bank!
  • The alternate (and preferred) method is for each workplace to collect and deliver the items to a local food bank of your choice. If you need assistance identifying a food bank or transporting items, please let us know.
  • Email photo(s) and approximate weight of the food collection to the coordinators (CC’d on this email) for tabulation by May 9th.
  • The winners of the contest will be announced during the week of May 12th, once all the information is compiled.


Thanks for your participation – let’s help some needy families have an enjoyable summer!
