Thank You, SEPTA Customers and Employees


SEPTA's third annual "Stop Hunger at Your Station" food drive resulted in almost 17.8 tons of food for Philabundance agencies.

"We cannot thank our customers and employees enough for their continued support of this campaign," said SEPTA General Manager Joseph Casey. "Philabundance has seen a dramatic increase in the number of people in need of its services and the food collected during this event will go a long way in helping our neighbors in need."

During the three-week food drive, the public dropped off much-needed items such as canned tuna and pasta, peanut butter and jelly at more than 50 SEPTA locations. A specially wrapped bus visited Regional Rail stations and transportation centers to collect donations. Monetary gifts also counted toward SEPTA's collection total.

In addition to the passengers' support of the campaign, "Stop Hunger at Your Station" got a boost from first-through-eighth grade students at Philadelphia's Nazareth Academy Grade School and SEPTA employees. The Nazareth Academy students collected more than 500 canned goods and held a rally against hunger at their school on June 1.

Throughout the food drive, employees at all SEPTA depots, districts and its Center City headquarters made contributions. Staff members at SEPTA's Frontier District - the Authority's smallest district - collected more than $1,600 to purchase items for the food drive.

Since 2009, SEPTA passengers and employees have donated more than 46 tons of food to Philabundance.

"'Stop Hunger at Your Station' is one of SEPTA's biggest community service efforts and we cannot wait to add to our overall total during the 2012 drive," said Casey.
