The 22nd Annual OriolesREACH Food Drive, This Weekend During The Yankees Series...

The 22nd annual OriolesREACH Food Drive will take place next Friday, Saturday and Sunday, August 22-24, at Camden Yards. Orioles Wives, Oriole Advocates, MASN and WJZ-TV personalities will collect non-perishable food items for the Maryland Food Bank prior to the Orioles’ games against the New York Yankees. Friday and Saturday’s games are scheduled for 7:05 p.m. and Sunday’s game will begin at 1:35 p.m.

All of the items collected will be given to the Maryland Food Bank for distribution to soup kitchens, food pantries and emergency shelters in central Maryland. Von Paris will provide collection boxes and transport the items collected from Oriole Park to the Food Bank.

Items most needed at this time include canned vegetables and fruits, dry cereals, pasta, peanut butter, powdered milk and canned meats. Fans may also donate personal care items such as toothpaste, shampoo, soap or disposable diapers. Cash donations will be accepted and will be used to purchase turkeys during Thanksgiving for needy Maryland families.

Last year, the OriolesREACH Food Drive netted 8,243 pounds of food and a record $30,000 in cash donations from fans attending the games.

To purchase tickets for next weekend’s series, fans should call 1-888-848-BIRD or visit
