Those who braved Saturday’s cold, wet weather during the Meadville Jaycees Halloween Parade were generous with their donations to help feed the Meadville area’s hungry.

“Considering the low turnout we are thrilled with the results of our collection efforts,” said Tribune Publisher Jeanne Moore-Yount.

Some 275 canned goods and other non-perishable food items were collected during the parade by staff on The Meadville Tribune’s float — Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard.

Saturday’s collection was the first of two planned food drive collections in the Meadville area to help support the Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwestern Pennsylvania.

The Tribune has teamed with WICU-TV of Erie and COOL 101.7 FM Radio of Meadville to support Second Harvest. Through Second Harvest, the locally collected food items will then be handed over to two Meadville food banks for distribution to local families.

The Tribune, WICU and COOL will be also hold a food drive Nov. 8 from 6 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., collecting donated items in the Tribune’s employee parking lot off Arch Street, across from the Meadville Area Federal Credit Union.
