Food Drive is partnership between Rotary clubs, WARM, Kroger
The Rotary Club of Westerville Sunrise has become a partner in this event and Kroger since its inception has been the drive’s major sponsor.
The food drive takes place in neighborhoods across Westerville. Volunteers are sought to be Team Captains, Drivers and Runners. Call WARM at 614-899-0196, ext 220 to volunteer.
