The DelFest Foundation Service Committee will hold its annual goods and funds drive for the cold weather shelter at the Union Rescue Mission. Donations will be collected Friday (today) from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the Life Fitness Management parking lot on National Highway in LaVale and the Western Maryland Railway Station parking lot in Cumberland. This all-volunteer effort results in money and goods going directly to the Union Rescue Mission to cover its expenses and stock its shelves. The cold weather shelter assists area people who are in need of housing during the winter months. Last year, the drive raised more than $1,000 and collected a truckload of goods. This year’s goal is to exceed those numbers since the need for assistance continues to grow. Doug Schwab is a committee member.
